I have a request from a client who was recently purchased by another company.  They are performing an audit and asked for informaiton on each user.  I am looking for a command that will provide firstname, lastname, username, date of last password change, password expiration, date of last login, and account status.  Any help would be very much appreciated.

If you install the Active Directory Management Gateway Service (https://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=2852) on the Domain controller you can then use the ActiveDirectory module for PowerShell and use the

Get-ADUser cmdlet to get a collection of all the user account objects from which you can get the details that you are after.
