I have a list of thousands ID name and need to find all locked out IDs. I can manually check them in AD. Is there any way to search them automatically using directory service command line?

Thanks in advance

I would use powershell and the quest AD cmdlets

http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx

$users = get-content c:\user.txt
foreach ($user in $users){
$u = get-qaduser $user
if ($u.AccountIsLockedOut -eq "True"){
write-host "User Account $user is locked"
}}

of for all users in AD and export to csv file

get-qaduser -sizelimit 0 | where{$_.AccountIsLockedOut -eq "True"} | select Name | export-csv c:\lockedusers.csv

Thanks very much KenMcF, I will try it.

Is it possible to use directory service command line to do this job?
