You want to change a password using Kerberos from a Unix machine.
If you have MIT Kerberos 5 client installed and configured properly, you can run the following commands, which will change your password in Active Directory:
$ kinit Password for jsmith@RALLENCORP.COM: **** $ kpasswd Password for jsmith@RALLENCORP.COM: **** Enter new password: ****** Enter it again: ****** Password changed.
See Recipe 18.7 for more information on Kerberos.
