Computer Account Password Reset process

This succinctly sums up the process.
Note that resetting a computer account is a client-initiated process, so clients that are turned off for months will still authenticate since they will only change the old password when they come back on line.
Also worth noting that before changing the password locally, they ensure that a valid secure channel exists so lack of connectivity should not cause a password mismatch.
