I ran the tool against a list of computers in AD. Several of them were DC's. When it completed it had changed the Domain Administrator password? None of the servers have a "Local" Administrator account, just AD. How did the tool change the AD account?

Doug,

When I attempt to test this I get access denied for all of my domain controllers (I assume because the account is privileged), but why add domain controllers to the list? And if it did indeed change the domain\administrator account then it is working as intended. I would just remove the DCs from your list.

Yep, I yanked them right after that little snafu! But I thought that this program only touched the "LOCAL" accounts, not AD accounts?
