Hey,

Yep, it's quite simple. This bit of VbScript assumes you know where the user is already and shows both ways:


Const ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE = &H2

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://CN=SomeUser,CN=Users,DC=SomeDomain,DC=com")

intUAC = objUser.Get("userAccountControl")
If intUAC And Not ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE Then
    WScript.Echo "User is Not Disabled"
End If

If intUAC And ADS_UF_ACCOUNTDISABLE Then
    WScript.Echo "User is Disabled"
End If
