    The quest tools add hundreds of commandlets that give you in one line what native powershell/ad cmdlets might take 10-20 lines to do. For me thats well worth it!!

    hi,  no exect needs. just have  some people saying its a must have, and from what i have seen, i can do the same in powershell. 1 line v 10+ is also worth it to me too.

    just opinions sought

    thank you

    OK, if you don't need to spend money for other tools and you agree to do that in more steps (but for free) in another tool, I don't see any reason to buy additional software. To be honest, many daily staff can be managed over Quest PowerShell module for AD and MS built-in PowerShell v2

    That's my opinnion ;)
