The other day I needed to generate some 1400+ new user passwords. Being a lazy person I figured that PowerShell could rescue me. This is what I did to check that my idea worked:
PS C:\> [System.Web.Security.Membership]::GeneratePassword(10,2)
As you can see this generates a password that is 10 characters in length and contains at least 2 non-alphanumeric characters. Now all I needed was to iterate this 1400 times and then output the result to the clipboard, simple as pie:
And that is a 1400 new passwords stored in the clipboard. I can now paste these or pipe them into a set password routine.
