Copy and past the script from the link into a notepad doc and name it with a .vbs extention.  

You will also need to change the strDomainDN line of the script and input your domain name. The instructions are on the same line.

mmm, interesting.

So I can then use all those vbs scripts I've bookmarked for AD?
Do they need to be run from the server?

So, for this script of finding disabled users, can you help spell it out how I would put in the config info for my domain?

**********************************************
' ------ SCRIPT CONFIGURATION ------
strDomainDN = "<DomainDN>"    ' e.g. dc=rallencorp,dc=com
' ------ END CONFIGURATION ---------

strBase   =  "<LDAP://" & strDomainDN & ">;"
**********************************************

Replace only the contents of the <>?
keep the LDAP:// ?

No, they do not have to run from the server, you can run them from the desktop.

Your config would look like the following if your domain was 123.abc.com:

**********************************************
' ------ SCRIPT CONFIGURATION ------
strDomainDN = "dc=123,dc=abc,dc=dom"    ' e.g. dc=rallencorp,dc=com
' ------ END CONFIGURATION ---------

strBase   =  "<LDAP://" & strDomainDN & ">;"
**********************************************

Replace the contents between the " ".  In this line, you are setting the variable strDomainDN to your domain name so that the script can substitute your domain name for every place it uses strDomainDN.  The variable can be named almost anything you like, it could be:

mickeymouse= "dc=123,dc=abc,dc=dom"

strBase   =  "<LDAP://" & mickeymouse & ">;"
