Managing Active Directory through PowerShell

Share this:

Hello folks,

Quest (www.quest.com) has released a free tool called ActiveRoles Management Shell for Active Directory that is a set of PowerShell commands (CMDLETs). Inside of this tool we have got some cmdlets to manage the Active Directory environment, here are the list of cmdlets available in the free tool:

  • CONNECT-QADSERVICE
  • DISCONNECT-QADSERVICE
  • GET-QADUSER
  • SET-QADUSER
  • NEW-QADUSER
  • GET-QADGROUP
  • NEW-QADGROUP
  • GET-QADGROUPMEMBER
  • ADD-QADGROUPMEMBER
  • REMOVE-QADGROUPMEMBER
  • GET-QADCOMPUTER
  • GET-QADOBJECT
  • SET-QADOBJECT
  • NEW-QADOBJECT
  • REMOVE-QADOBJECT
  • CONVERT-QADATTRIBUTEVALUE

You can get it here: http://www.quest.com/activeroles-server/arms.aspx
Ps.: Registration will be required

Tomorrow, we will be visualizing the new tool called PowerGUI, if you don’t like to write cmdlets that will be your perfect tool :)

Best Regards,
Anderson Patricio
