    Red face Change the "User must change password at next logon" attribute

    im working on a app that will got through a pre defined list and people and set the "Change password at next logon" to 1 but not sure how to do this. I have gotten to the point where im finding the user by GetDirectoryEntry.Username but unsure how to find and set this attribute. Any help would be appreciated. here is the code so far

    Imports System
    Imports System.DirectoryServices

    Namespace ActiveDirectorySearch
    Public Class ADSearch
    Shared Sub main(ByVal strUserName As String)

    Dim DSESearcher As New DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
    Dim RootDSE As String = DSESearcher.SearchRoot.Path

    RootDSE = RootDSE.Insert(7, "ou=MINN Corporate,ou=Corp Users,")

    Dim MySearcher As DirectorySearcher = New DirectorySearcher(RootDSE)
    Dim objResults As SearchResult

    MySearcher.Filter = "(ObjectType=User)"

    For Each objResults In MySearcher.FindAll()

    If objResults.GetDirectoryEntry.Username.ToString = strUserName Then

    End If
    End Sub
    End Class
    End Namespace

    You need to reset the pwdLastSet property to 0.

    Im sorry but do you think you could show me in code. Im good at picking this up when I can see it. Also I noticed a reference to ActiveDS namespace. I dont seem to see that in the list of available refrences.

    I'll see if I can come up with an example. This is a property for the User object, which should be the result of your search.

    The reference to ActiveDS is the COM interop library for ADSI. You don't need it for expiring the password.
