Active Directory it's a tool that IT Pro has use it when work with Windows. But sometimes can be very difficult to manage Users and Computers when company has hundreds of Users.

You must have one IT to check at least one time every month to identify inactive  or disable users that must be deleted or remove access.

We know that this can't be happened and most of the times clean up of Active Directory canceled for other task.

Keeping Active Directory clean can help you to increase the security of your environment , reduce bandwidth of replication if you have multiple Sites in different countries , manage more efficient your Active Directory Users and Computers. 

These are some of the basic advantages that can have. 

Unfortunately if the company that you are work has lot of users and computers it's not so easy task. I 'm sure that some of you have to do with hundreds of users and computers in Active Directory and multiple Organization Units.  

Powershell is a great way to automate your daily tasks.As IT Pro has  a lot of tasks that must complete daily and more tasks to schedule it for next day , next month or repeat a tasks every month.

The necessary of automation it's important for every IT Pro. Sometimes the difficult is to find the time and the concentration that need to create a Powershell Script , do the necessary tests to automate one of your tasks.

After several weeks i would like to publish a new Powershell script that create to automate one of my task.
