Hi,

you can filter that user by powershell comand

http://www.petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=26636

Account expiration can be set by powershell script or localy by admin

you can use this command

But change date to never

Fastest way to do this would be to Edit Properties of multiple accounts which reside in the OU.
- Go to the OU where the disabled users are
- Hold ctrl (idividually select) or hold shift (select multiple) users
- Right click one of the users you select > click properties
- Click on the Account Tab
- From here you can set new expire date, unlock the account etc (see screenshot below)...
Edit Multiple PropertiesThere are additonal properties you can set that are not viewable in the screenshot above.

You can also do this via powershell as well. Use the below syntax for reference...
import-module activedirectory
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Searchbase "ou=testou,dc=domain,dc=com" -Properties * | Set-ADUser -Enabled $true -AccountExpirationDate "02/28/2014"

Open in new window


The script above will take all users in the "testou" and Enable their account and set the expire date to Feb 28 2014.

I am a bit confused are you asking how all accounts in one OU are set to expire on a specific date or how to set all accounts to expire?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

I believe that the user is saying that he has an OU with disabled accounts and needs to have them all re-enabled, based on what i read.

But this statement "automatic how to find why and resolved this issue" makes me think otherwise though.... ;-)

Yeah I guess it could help if it was worded differently. I guess we just need to see what the asker says :-D

If these accounts are getting disabled there are only three ways for it to happen..

his is not a default Microsoft Active Directory Domain Services behavior. Below are the only possibilities for the accounts being locked

a) Manual disabling of User account or User accounts

b) Schedule Task which triggers a Script to disable the User account / User accounts

b) Manual execution of WMI Script / Powershell Script to disable the User account or User accounts
