You can quickly find you yourself in a position where there is no GUI installed on a Windows Sever.   One of the most common tasks as an admin is to change a password for a user account.  This can actually be done quickly and easily through the command line.

Steps To Complete

1.  Log onto the server as administrator.

2.  Launch a command prompt with administrator privileges.

3. Enter the following command: net user user_name * /domain.

Note: The asterisk in step three will cause a prompt for the password so you don’t type it in pain text.

Example: Changing password for snadmin.
