I need an AD report ideally using a free tool/command line tool to list all AD users who are exempt from password expiry including the fields

username, password last set date, status (i.e. disabled/enabled).

Please provide recommendations on the tool and the appropriate syntax.

without need to install anything special you can use AD Users and computers and create query here - non-expiring passwords
you will get list of users with password set to never expires and their names, also you can see if it is disabled or not (or you can do a similar query for disabled accounts)
You wont see last changed password in the table but in each user attribute properties you should be able to see also this.
If this is not sufficient for you I guess you can achieve this using PowerShell

in add/remove columns, which column will show "account status". I couldnt see anything obvious. In fact I have added all columns and I cant see which are disabled/enabled. I cant check them all manually as there are >1000 accounts.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Please have a look at this application. Its freeware but up to some limitation on the number of users.

Hope it helps.

Thanks.

The first solution worked if I ticked both options, but ideally I wanted a single report, i.e all non expiring accounts, and then their status (i.e. enabled/disabled), rather than 2 reports for the 2 different criteria, but maybe I can merge them in some other software like access.

You can accomplish this using the Native powershell commands. See below...

Import-module activedirectory
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties * | ? {$_.PasswordNeverExpires -eq "true"} | select name, samaccountname, PasswordNeverExpires, Enabled

Open in new window


Will.
