Team,

Can someone please provide me with a nice file, repository, blog with all cmdlets for managing Active directory by category? i.e. I would like to obtain something like

To manager users: use these cmdlets

To manage groups: use these cmdlets

To manage server objects

Thanks in advance

Jerry

You can easily browse through the list of AD cmdlets.
Here's a simple way to try finding what you need.
Get-Command *user* -Module activedirectory
Get-Command *group* -Module activedirectory

Open in new window


Not sure what you mean exactly by "server objects".  Servers are just computers, so you might try something like:
Get-Command *computer* -Module activedirectory

Open in new window

I don't have any links to blogs, but the "Hey, Scripting Guy!" blogs are usually good.
For most questions regarding the AD cmdlets, I refer to their help.  You can read the online version (webpage), or just run the Get-Help command.  It includes descriptions of the parameters, has examples, etc.

TechNet has all of the scripts you can use. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh852274(v=wps.630).aspx has a list with descriptions of general Cmdlet purpose. Usually you can google a cmdlet that you want to use to get syntax and usage info as well.

You can get most of the information available in TechNet straight from powershell by running
get-help <cmdlet name> -full
