#Create a variable for the date stamp in the log file
$LogDate = get-date -f yyyyMMddhhmm

#Sets the OU to do the base search for all user accounts, change for your env.
$SearchBase = "CN=Temp Associates,OU=Res Accounts,DC=our,DC=domain,DC=org"

#Create an empty array for the log file
$LogArray = @()

#Sets the number of days to disable user accounts based on lastlogontimestamp and pwdlastset.
$PasswordAge = (Get-Date).adddays(-29)

#Use ForEach to loop through all users with pwdlastset and lastlogontimestamp greater than date set. Also added users with no lastlogon date set. Disables the accounts and adds to log array.
#Add the properties you will be using to ensure they are available.
$DisabledUsers = (Get-ADUser -searchbase $SearchBase -Properties samaccountname, name, distinguishedname -filter {((lastlogondate -notlike "*") -OR (lastlogondate -le $Passwordage)) -AND (enabled -eq $True) -AND (whencreated -le $Passwordage)} )

if ($DisabledUsers -ne $null -and $DisabledUsers.Count > 0) {
    ForEach ($DisabledUser in $DisabledUsers) {

        #Sets the user objects description attribute to a date stamp. Example "11/13/2011"
        set-aduser $DisabledUser -Description ((get-date).toshortdatestring()) -whatif

        #Disabled user object. To log only add "-whatif"
        Disable-ADAccount $DisabledUser -whatif

        #Create new object for logging
        $obj = New-Object PSObject
        $obj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Name" -Value $DisabledUser.name
        $obj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "samAccountName" -Value $DisabledUser.samaccountname
        $obj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "DistinguishedName" -Value $DisabledUser.DistinguishedName
        $obj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Status" -Value 'Disabled'

        #Adds object to the log array
        $LogArray += $obj


    # Move disabled users in Temp Associates group to Disabled OU 
    Search-ADAccount –AccountDisabled –UsersOnly –SearchBase “CN=Temp Associates,OU=Res Accounts,DC=our,DC=domain,DC=org”  | 
    Move-ADObject –TargetPath “OU=Disabled,DC=our,DC=domain,DC=org” -WhatIf

    #Exports log array to CSV file in the temp directory with a date and time stamp in the file name.
    $logArray | Export-Csv "C:\Temp\User_Report_$logDate.csv" -NoTypeInformation

    #Send e-mail to Global Helpdesk with report generated
    $emailFrom = "sender@mail.com" 
    $emailTo = "recipient@mail.com" 
    $subject = "NA Disabled Temp Users to be deleted" 
    $smtpServer = "smtp.server.com"
    $attachment = "C:\Temp\User_Report_$logDate.csv"

    Send-MailMessage -To $emailTo -From $emailFrom -Subject $subject -SmtpServer $smtpServer -attachment $attachment
}else {
    Write-Output "No disabled users to process for $PasswordAge."
