Script(s) for password policies

John Hammerdink

I have a fairly rigid set of rules to play by here and they can't be altered, which sucks of course.  We cannot set accounts to expire or lock them out.

What I need to script:

(1)Query AD for users whose passwords are 365 days old against the pwdlastset attribute.  I also need to be able to exclude accounts that are set to never expire
(2)Email a report of the number/list
(3)Email users in stages that their password is going to expire
(4)When the day arrives I need to scramble their password

I can generally do these separately fine enough but i would highly appreciate a powershell guru who could whip something up to help with this.  I can stumble through this but there is a bit of a time crunch on this.

Any help would greatly help.

How to Setup a Password Expiration Notification Email Solution
Ref: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askpfeplat/2015/05/04/how-to-setup-a-password-expiration-notification-email-solution/
Since you dont have password expiry set, you might need to change line (I have not tested this)
$expireson = $passwordsetdate + $maxPasswordAge
To 

$expireson = $passwordsetdate + 365

or

$expireson = $passwordsetdate + (New-TimeSpan -Days 365)

To set password you can use Set-ADAccountPassword
Set-ADAccountPassword –Identity UserA -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "p@ssw0rd" –Force)
