            [/SecurePasswordPrompt]

Key:

   Server      The name of a specific domain controller that should have its
               machine account password reset.

   /UserD      User account used to make the connection with the domain
               controller specified by the /Server argument.

   /PasswordD  Password of the user account specified By /UserD.
               Specifying a * will prompt for the password.

   /SecurePasswordPrompt 
               Use secure credentials popup to specify credentials. This
               option should be used when smartcard credentials need to be
               specified. This option is only in effect when the password 
               value is supplied as *

Currently there is no support for resetting the machine password of a remote machine or a member server.
All parameters must be specified.

Netdom options can be abbreviated to just the UPPER case letters, e.g. /PasswordD can be supplied as just /PD
