Its difficult to determine what your after, are you looking to retrieve a list of users who's passwords will be expiring, or do you want to find out what a users password was 2-3 months ago? –  Sam Jun 2 '09 at 12:10

I'm not exactly sure I understand what you're asking for. But take a look at dsquery.exe, which can retrieve many interesting things from an Active Directory.
