Is it possible to change the Domain Administrator account password using a

    Sure. Any user in the domain admins group can change the password for any
    user in Active Directory Users and Computers. If you enable auditing of
    account management in Domain Controller Security Policy you can audit
    password changes to domain user accounts. --- Steve
