Free AD Tools that made my day

I will show you today three free tools from SolarWinds that can make great Maintenance Tasks on Active Directory:

1- Delete obsolete user accounts:

with this you can get a report of all inactive User Accounts (based on last logon Time attribute of the Object in AD) after choosing inactive period to check ….for example all accounts that didn’t log into the domain from 30 days or 90 days ……and you can Delete them directly from your AD or export them in a CSV file where you can use PowerShell to Delete or Disable them as you like. 

2- Delete obsolete computer accounts

with this you can get a report of all inactive Computer Accounts (based on last logon Time attribute of the Object in AD) after choosing inactive period to check ….for example all Computers that didn’t log into the domain from 30 days or 90 days ……and you can Delete them directly from your AD or export them in a CSV file where you can use PowerShell to Delete or Disable them  or move them to specific OU for Obsolete Objects as you like. 

3- Import User Accounts:

with this you can bulk create User Accounts based on a list in a CSV file, and also you can choose to create a Mailboxs for them or not.

 

 Although we can do these tasks with PowerShell, it is easier to do it by these tools if you are not familiar with PowerShell
