Is there a way of running a report in Active Directory to see all the User Accounts created for 2008?  I can't seem to find an option to do this

Thanks in advance

Paste the script below into a text file with a .vbs extension.  Customize the value of the strContainer variable on line 5 with the distinguished name of the domain or OU to search under.  Running the script will find all user accounts created in 2008 and write the results to a text file.


On Error Resume Next
 
Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2
 
strContainer = "dc=yourdomain,dc=com"
intYear = 2008
strReport = "report.txt"
 
On Error Resume Next
 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objReport = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strReport, True)
 
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
 
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE 
 
objCommand.CommandText = _
    "SELECT ADSPath FROM 'LDAP://" & strContainer & "' " & _
        "WHERE objectCategory='user'"  
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
 
objRecordSet.MoveFirst
 
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    Set objUser = GetObject(objRecordSet.Fields("ADSPath").Value)
    
    If Year(objUser.WhenCreated) = intYear Then
        objReport.WriteLine objUser.distinguishedName
    End If
    
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop
 
objReport.Close

Hi,

In case the question is still open to anybody, my recommendation is a third party solution called Softerra Adaxes:
http://www.adaxes.com
It includes a vast number of AD reports, and the one particular needed is called "All Users".

Thank you.
