Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need a tool/script that can help me find local user accounts that do not have passwords across a network. Not all computers will be on the domain, but 90% are (win2003). But I need to audit/check local user accounts, not domain user accounts.

I was looking for more of a best practice recommendation, so I could not ask a specific question. –  Logman Aug 21 '12 at 15:25

does this have to be installed on each computer? –  Logman Aug 21 '12 at 15:21
No, you only install it on an administrative workstation and run it from there. –  Chris S Aug 21 '12 at 15:22
