Identifying Locked AD Accounts

When searching for specific AD accounts, you may have used Get-ADUser in the past, and filtered results with a filter parameter. Such filters can grow quite complex, though.

That’s why there is a shortcut for the most common AD searches. Simply use Search-ADAccount:

#requires -Modules ActiveDirectory


Search-ADAccount -AccountDisabled 
Search-ADAccount -AccountExpired
Search-ADAccount -AccountInactive

Search-ADAccount exposes parameters to search for the most common criteria.
