Hi Experts,

I have been tasked with extracting a list of all AD Users and which printers they currently have associated with thier profiles as well as the list of applications installed on each of thier workstations,
We have about 80-90 computers (all WinXP Pro SP3 clients) and a Windows 2003 DC, what options are there for me to get this info, free utlities? Scripting (are you able to provide me with a sample script)
kindly advise,

Many thanks in advance,

Craig

There is noting in AD that will give you this information. You could get all the users many ways.
ADFind fromjoeware.net
adfind -default -f "&(objectclategory=person)(objectclass=user)" name
Powershell, Quest AD cmdlets, MS AD Cmdlets.
get-qaduser | ft name
VBScript
If you are using security groups for printer access you could query those groups and get the users for each printer.

Take a look at a software package like spiceworks, http://www.spiceworks.com/
This may give you want you are looking for.

Or you are looking at custom script to query every computer.
