I've been using AD Info, but one thing I need to do is count the total number of objects in AD and I cannot find a way to list the total number of objects using AD Info.  I see some postings on how to do it in PowerShell, but I haven't been successful.

That is where the adfind shortcuts come in very handy

adfind -sc adobjcnt
adfind -sc adobjcnt:user
adfind -sc adobjcnt:group
adfind -sc adobjcnt:computer


There are other examples in help

Thanks
