IISADMPWD Replacement Tool protects your website and/or web application either by interfacing with your Active Directory accounts and/or local SAM account database.

The solution is comprised of two simple ASP.NET web applications: one to check the password status and one to allow password changes if the password is expired or must be changed at next logon. The solution can either act as an omnipresent front end for your web application or can sit in waiting to act when users try to access your web application who have an invalid password.

Web Active Directory engineered a replacement solution for the Microsoft® IISADMPWD utility because the legacy Microsoft release of IISADMPWD does not support IIS 7 and later. Many organizations employed the IISADMPWD tool with IIS 5 and IIS 6 to allow password changes in Active Directory from web applications. With the release of IIS 7 and its architectural and security changes from previous versions of IIS, the old IISADMPWD tool no longer works. In fact, Microsoft doesn’t even support IISADMPWD on IIS 7 and later. Our solution allows users to change their active directory password from a web page without requiring changes to your IIS 7 web application.

Check out the following features and benefits that IISADMPWD Replacement Tool provides.

  • Allows Active Directory password changes when the “User must change password at next logon” flag is set
  • Uses IIS Anonymous authentication to allow users to access the web applications in IIS 7 regardless of their active directory or lcoal password status
  • Easily integrates with your web application
  • Includes two web applications:
    • Check Password Status: Acts as the first page of the authentication process and checks the Active Directory password status for a user to determine if the password must be changed. This is optional.
    • Change Password: Allows users to change their Active Directory password: this can either be redirected to from your website and/or web application (without any changes on your end) or from the IISADMPWD Check Password Status application
  • Redirects the user to your web application after the password status check completes and no password change is needed
  • Allows your web application to authenticate the user with your normal scheme
  • Can use an HTML redirector file to redirect clients with HTTP 401.1 errors (Access is denied due to invalid credentials)
  • Requires no changes to your web application configuration and checks the AD password status before the user tries to authenticate against your application
  • Requires no changes to your web application configuration and checks the AD password status before the user tries to authenticate against your application
  • Works against your Active Directory account store and/or local SAM Account database
