Hi,
      I am using ADFind to list my AD users. I would like to add the account expirations if possible. Here is the current script that gives me all the users with their names:

adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)" samaccountname displayname -csv > c:\users.csv
Is this possible?

Thank you

That's what I said. I don't think you can use that particular Joeware tool for that, not natively anyway.
open an elevated powershell session and try this:
import-module activedirectory
Get-AdUser -Filter * -Properties * | Select SAMAccountname, DisplayName, AccountExpirationDate | Export-CSV -Path C:\path\to\folder\file.csv

Open in new window

Change the path to wherever you need the exported file.

I ran the last script in the elevated powershell as directed. It returned the names but no expiration dates. The column was there but they were all blank.

Are the accounts set to "not expire"? Spot check and see if an account actually has an expiration date.

Ah ha! That is it. Hey, thanks for your help. Would you want to throw in a lookup for expiring passwords?

How about this,
get-aduser your-user-name -properties *

Open in new window


This will give you all the properties for your AD account, then find the one(s) you want and add it to the command I gave you above. :)
