Experts,

I would like to know if there is some sort of script or method that I can run on my Active directory ( Windows 2003) to find out what is the status of all my users.

In detail, I want to know how many users I have, under what Organizational Unit, and most importantly, what "Group Membership" they have.

Thank you,
R

ADFind is the tool you should use:

adfind -default -f "(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(sAMAccountType=805306368))" -c

The -c will provide the count of objects in your query.

You can also do this with oldcmp using:
oldcmp -report -users -age 0 -rsort pwdLastSet -sh

You can use the memberOf utiltiy to get all groups and members

The primary group is not a member of memberOf attribute so it has to be grabbed  specially.

Thanks to Joe Richards for all of his awesome tools!
