Hi CMILLER,

dsquery allows you to find objects in Active Directory.

Here is more information about the command
http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/46ba1426-43fd-4985-b429-cd53d3046f011033.mspx?mfr=true


dsget    allow you to retrieve attributes or selected properties of a specific objects  in active directory

here is a link about this command
http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/96a4a5ee-ee72-44d5-845f-71b2de33d4411033.mspx?mfr=true

Neither DSquery, DSget, DSmod, DSadd, or Dsrm will allow you to retrieve a user password or tell you the length of the password.

DSmod will allow you to modify a user's password.
