Although generating the password expiration date with native tools like PowerShell looks simple, it comes with a few limitations:

  • PowerShell script can be run only from the computers which have the Active Directory Domain Services role installed in them.
  • The script has to be rewritten if password expiration date has to be generated for a different user.
  • Need for a new script, in case the report needs to be exported.
  • The syntax, parameters and iterations need to be correct. A typo or incorrect syntax might be difficult to spot and rectify, especially when the script is a long one.

ADManager Plus lets you perform the same with a few clicks from its web based GUI console. It also has options for scheduling and automatically emailing the reports. Learn more about it here.
