PowerShell – Listing aged out computer accounts in Active Directory

PowerShellDo you remember having to use OldCmp.exe  from JoeWare (great tools by the way) to capture a a list of computer accounts which have not been attached to your Active Directory for a period of time. Luckily with PowerShell and Quest ActiveRoles you can do this with a simple two line script.

Here’s the code: http://gist.github.com/492494

PowerShell – Active Directory – Email users with password expiry < 14 days

PowerShell – Active Directory – Email users with password expiry under 14 daysPowerShell

This script is handy for users who are not typically on your network (remote access, email only etc…). Normally users are warned at 14 days before expiry unless they are not logging into Active Directory through the workstation in which case they will not receive warnings until the password expires.

Simply set this to run daily and it will locate and email anyone who has a password expiry less than 14 days. To change the criteria, simply modify the If statement.

You need to install the ActiveRoles CmdLets from Quest Software (follow the link in the Gist)
