    Component, to:

     .......\Inetpub\wwwroot\DRAWeb\WebConsole\Custom\AccountManagement\Users\UserResetPassword
    directory.
  2. Select the Properties.asp in the custom directory.
  3. Right-click and select Edit.
  4. In the Properties.asp page make the changes listed in bold below:


dim FormCtrl
 
 set FormCtrl           = TaskForm.AddCtrl("checkbox", "SuggestPwd")
 FormCtrl.Label         = Task.GetMsg("LABEL_SUGGEST_PWD")
 FormCtrl.Help          = Task.GetMsg("HELP_SUGGEST_PWD")
 FormCtrl.Enabled       = False
 FormCtrl.Visible       = False
 set FormCtrl           = nothing
