Password Changes on Multiple Servers?
I've got approximately 45 Linux servers that I need to change my user password on every three months. This takes a lot of my time to logon to each server, run passwd, answer the questions interactively, and then logoff, of each server. The number of servers I've got just seems to be going up, and it's getting longer and longer to do this. Does anyone have a way to change your user password on multiple servers using some sort of script? I'm using Putty for my SSH client.
Any help would be appreciated!

how bout something like this http://www.stearns.org/fanout/README.html
also, if you have access to webmin and these are lan machines you could use webmin and have it sync the users from each machine including password. even though webmin can use ssl I don't think I would open 45 holes across the internet for webmin.

Can you use NIS? That would be a heck of a lot easier.
