Active directory tools
« on: October 15, 2007, 07:20:06 AM »
Anyone know any good active directory tools.

We use AD at work for changing peoples passwords, i wondered if anyone has come across any utils that make it alot easier too use, and locks you out of stuff.

I used my own MMC for a while its ok, but its rubbish in vista.

depends what ur trying to do exactly, but the ds* (dsadd dsmod etc) commands for command prompt are far more efficient than the AD GUI IMO.
