launch powershell

run import-module ActiveDirectory

get-ADUser -filter *

that will pull every single user with details.

However, that being said, your easier option is to get Hyena and then use that to generate a nice CSV file. I use it every few weeks to do the same thing :D

Regards

Alex

alexgreen312, thanks for mentioning Hyena! Hyena would be a lot easier for this type of reporting. You can modify a user query with the fields you want and report all users, or since you have a list of users you could create a temporary group and paste in your list of users. The Add button on the Members tab allows you to paste in a list of users, and then from there you can view the members of that group to see the information you want.

If you want to look at Hyena, and need steps to do this just let us know and we'll get you going.

Hi all..

I have to change my question now.

I only need to find out if the 500 users are enable or disabled, and when is the expired date.

Is that possible to do that thank you in advance

Hi chuckmccullough,

Could you send some link to Hyena tools. I would like to have a look if we can install this on our server.

On the page Scott linked to above click the Free Trial button and you can download from there. Hyena can be installed on any Windows-based system, so you can install it on your workstation and manage your domain from there. It can also be installed on a server, but doesn't have to be.
