Using script with AD database

Courtesy: Nguyen Quoc Dung.

Use these scripts if you want to list and execute all AD objects that are inactive for more than 60 days and count all Computers in AD grouped by OS, so you can know how many percentages of computers running XP or Windows 7. These information is extracted from AD Database and write a statistical report to a text file.

How to use it:

– Script file download (Use it at your own risk): ListComputers.jse

– Run it in computer joined domain and under domain account, just by double click on it (if you want get default information: Count computers in current domain).

– For optional, I have only some more arguments, with syntax like: ListComputers.jse -forest [-domain:domainname] -detail

– Example: ListComputers.jse forest

This will list all domains in forest and count computers for each domain

  • ListComputers.jse domain:

This will count computers in domain

ListComputers.jse detail

This will count computers in current domain and list all computer name with the obsoleted days, see the below result as an example.

  • You can use args -detail with -domain:domainname or with -forest. Don’t use -domain and -forest at the same time.
  • If you put wrong args, script will run as no args (same thing like you double click to file)

– Result is a file name like [ScriptName]_[Day]_[Month]_[Year].log in the same folder of this script.
