In ADUC, if I run a query, i.e. non expiring passwords. If the account is returned with a white cross in a red circle to the left of the username, does that mean the account is disabled? or something else?

Yes, it is disabled manually or by script (initiated by administrator). But remember, disable doesn't mean locked :)

Also, in ADUC how can I do a query that just lists active (i.e. non disabled account) that have passwords that dont expire?

OK, check this doc I attached :)

I would suggest for that

DS Tools (dsquery) or Quest PowerShell cmd-lets

Much better.

Thanks will use your query.

When you said disabled doesnt mean locked, what did you mean.

As I understood it only an adminisrtator can re-enable a disabled account, a standard user couldnt, so disabled means disabled as far as the user is concerned, they couldnt use the account unless the admin un froze it, could they?

Locked account means that user typed few times his password incorrect. Then account is locked and administrator needs to unlock it to be able to log on.

Disabled account means that administrator disabled it because user left company or is on long holidays. Even I know its password, I cannot login.

Yes, administrator only can disable/enable accounts
