Powershell cmdlets and scripts for AD in 2012 R2

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

Any blog, or link that is currently being used as repository of power shell cmdlet for AD? Looking for examples, cmdlets, code, and so on

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
