The following are the advantages over Active Directory tools:
A user template contains the values of the user attributes defined in it. When you want to create user accounts with similar privileges and permissions, you can create a template with the common attributes and just change the values that differ, say the logon name, display name, etc. This saves your time and helps avoid any possible errors.
The following are the advantages:
The user accounts that are disabled by the administrator are termed as account disabled users. They do not have login permissions in the domain. Inactive users are those who have login permissions in the domain, but have not logged on to the domain for the specified period.
The account expired users are those whose user account has become invalid. This may happen in cases where a temporary account is created for a specific period beyond which the account expires.
The Password expired users are those who are not able to use their account as their password has expired. As a security policy, the users might be required to change the password within a specified period after which they may not be able to login using their old password. The password has to be reset for the user to login again.
