Password Reports

Active Directory password reports

Users' Active Directory (AD) passwords play a crucial role in ensuring not just the continuous productivity of an organization, but also its information security. Besides allowing users to log on to their network or domain, users' passwords also ensure that business-critical information does not fall into the wrong hands.

Managing and securing AD users' passwords is therefore a key part of every Windows administrator's responsibilities. To perform these tasks, administrators need vital information such as when the password was set, the password's expiration date, which users who have not changed their passwords, and which users have modified their passwords. While Microsoft's tools—such as Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) and PowerShell—could be used to get this information from AD, the amount of effort it would take would be akin to sailing around the world in a canoe.

Active Directory password reports from ADManager Plus

ADManager Plus, the web-based AD, Office 365, and Exchange management and reporting solution, offers over 150 predefined reports, including password-specific reports to identify:

  • Users with expired passwords
    Users with expired passwords: Administrators can easily identify all users whose passwords have expired. This report also displays additional details such as the password expiration date, the date and time the password was set, and account status. Administrators can reset the passwords for relevant users right from this report.
  • Users whose passwords are about to expire: Zero-in on all users whose passwords will expire soon. Administrators can use this report to reset the password, set the password expiration date to "never expires," or force users to change their passwords the next time they log in. This report makes it easy to proactively ensure that users can continue accessing their domains without any interruption.
  • Users who haven't changed their passwords
    User who have recently changed their password: Find every user who has modified their password recently. If any critical user's password has been changed, such as a senior executive, administrators can check with them to confirm if the password changes were legitimate or if someone has been trying to meddle with their accounts.
  • Users who haven't changed their passwords: Lists all the users who have not changed their passwords for a specific period of time. Changing passwords regularly is one of the best practices to ensure password security. Right from this report, administrators can reset passwords or force users to reset their passwords at their next logon.
  • Users that have password never expires enabled
    Users that have "password never expires" enabled: Lists every AD user that has their password expiration date set to "never." If a senior executive or other important user with elevated privileges doesn't have a specific password expiration date, the password could become vulnerable. Administrators can specify an expiration date so that critical users' passwords are updated periodically.
  • Recent logon failures
    Recent logon failures: Administrators can easily identify users whose attempts to log on have been denied because they supplied an incorrect password. This report can be generated every day or at regular intervals. If any user account shows up in the report repeatedly, this could signal a security threat. This report also displays the time the login failed and if the login failure happened during non-business hours.

With these reports, ADManager Plus makes it easier for AD administrators and technicians to efficiently manage their users' passwords, and also proactively detect and prevent any possible threats.
