In a server 2012 we can use powershell for get our works done easily.Im sharing some of them with this article.

1.Search inactive adaccounts with last login date

Search-ADAccount -AccountInactive|fl name,lastlogondate


2.Find no of computers using simple powershell commands( i have used one integer variable for get the count)


$intcomcount=Get-ADComputer -Filter {name -like “*”}


3.Find locked out ad accounts

Search-ADAccount -LockedOut

4.Find the active directory user groups with category and group scope

Get-ADgroup -Filter {name -like “*”}|ft name,groupscope,groupcategory
