JoeWare presents AdMod
If you have tried modifying or manipulating objects in your Windows 2003 Active Directory using some of the new command-line tools such as dsget.exe, dsmod.exe, msquery, or dsrm.exe, then you have discovered the same limitations that many others have. I see a lot of postings to this effect in the newsgroups. These tools only support a limited set of attributes. My favorite tool for dealing with this is ADMODIFY.NET.
However, I was just referred by a fellow Exchange MVP to a new (and FREE!) command-line tool called AdMod. Most cool. This tool can update existing attributes, add values to attributes, clear an attribute, add values to multi-value attributes, delete objects, rename an object, move and object and undelete an object (if you are running Windows 2003). The undelete account feature can be very handy. I have used Quest's Recovery Manager and it is pretty cool for doing this.
Check out Joe's AdFind tool, too. Very popular tool amoungst MVPs and techies for searching the Active Directory. Much more powerful than dsquery.exe.
Thanks Joe! As we say in Hawaii, you no na oi!
