Hi there,

I would like to know how can I list all the disabled users via Powershell in Windows 2008 SP2.

Does anyone know a Cmdlet or a script for it??

Thanks.

Try this code
 Save it to a file with the '.ps1' extention then run it with the arguments zshown below:

C:\Disabled.ps1 -domain mydomain -q

make sure your computer allows unsigned scripts to run

to enable this, run powershell as admin, then type in these commands:

Set-ExecutionPolicy

Then when it asks for the policy type in this one:

RemoteSigned

then press enter followeed by Y then enter

you should now be able to execute unsigned scripts, but if you use the pre-made one attached then you will have to right click on the download and select 'UnBlock'

If you use and import the ActiveDirectory module of R2 then:

Search-ADAccount -AccountDisabled

You can add the AD DS Remote Server Administration Tools feature with Server Manager and then in the PowerShell window run:
 import-module activedirectory
