Does anyone know if it is possible for a log to be generated when PsPassWd (tool included in PsTools from SysInternals.com) is run? I have searched for the answer elsewhere but not found an anything.

If you turn on auditing, you should be able to capture password change event - is that what you want?
If you have SMS in your environment, set up a metering rule for the executable (not sure if it's going to fly though, since it's likely to run under ntvdm)

revizor,

Thanks for the reply. I am hoping against hope that maybe there is something within PsTools itself. It probably does not exist. We could do auditing, but it is more effort than I want to face.

I am running PsPassWd against an NT4 domain, so there is alot of remote management functionality I do not have at my disposal. No SMS, either. I am also running it against a .txt file that contains the names of all the workstations on the domain.

Ok. Never mind. As it turns out, it actually is possible to generate a log file by appending a common command to the end of the PsPassWd syntax. The full command I used is:

pspasswd @file Administrator [password] >c:\report.log
