Quickly identify issues in your Active Directory containers with this very simple freeware tool, but be warned that some users have reported accuracy issues. AD Inspector largely resembles Windows Explorer's detail view interface. You won't find a help file here, but if you have the skill to operate Active Directory, you won't need any assistance using this utility.

AD Inspector's filter criteria are comprehensive and quite easy to set. Simple check boxes select most options, but the program helpfully adds simple calendar selectors for date fields and a general search string box. Clearing all filters takes a simple click. Highlighting older results is easily accomplished by selecting the number of days, although we wished we had the ability to choose the highlight color for increased readability. The same is true for highlighting nonexpiring passwords. Once you've set your filter parameters, you merely click a button to display results. The program is quick, and it uses little memory overhead.

Some longtime users have identified accuracy issues with the filtered results, but we found no problems during our tests. System administrators tasked with using Active Directory will quickly uncover issues with this freeware.

Developer's Description

Manage Active Directory accounts and generate reports.
AD Inspector is a simple Explorer-style interface for Active Directory account management and reporting. It significantly reduces the administrative burden of identifying and remediating Active Directory security pain points. Simply enter the search criteria (creation dates, last logon, and password expiration flags) and immediately identify any objects within Active Directory that match it.
