DSQUERY a group for expiring passwords

I am trying to figure our how to use DSQUERY to query users accounts who will expire within a certian timeframe from a specific group. I can successfully use dsquery user -stalepwd 55 for example but this queries all users in AD.

How can I use this to check a specific group of users only? I tried playing arounf with the dsquery group command but cannot seem to get it right.

Are you trying to query users in a "group" or an "ou"?

I cannot find anything about piping a dsquery -stalepwd into a dsget group.

but i would suggest using dsget group "groupDN" -members and using csvde to export them to a csv file.

then use csvde to import them and run a dsquery on the file.

I would suggest a much easier tool to do this than dsquery. Download the memberOf tool from Active Directory MVP Joe: http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/memberof/index.htm.

Extract the contents, then at a command line, use the command:

FindExpAcc -pwd -days 55 -f "(&(objectClass=User)(memberOf=% DN of the Security Group %))"

That will return all the users in the security group specified who will have a password expiring in 55 days or less.

If you need a quick way to find out the DN of the security group, download ADFind (from the same site): http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm. Extract the tool then run

adfind -sc g:Name of Group

The first line of the output will be the DN which you can then use in the FindExpAcc command.
