Two lines that can save your AD from a crisis------Prevent accidental deletions of AD objects

http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2013/06/04/two-lines-that-can-save-your-ad-from-a-crisis.aspx


For All users

For All OUs
9.
Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -filter * | Set-ADObject -ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion:$true


For All Groups

10. Get-ADObject -filter {ObjectClass -eq
"user" -or ObjectClass -eq "group"} | Set-ADObject -ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion:$true

11.Reset the password for all users of an OU

20. How to find the Roles those are installed.

  .
 
Microsoft released PowerShell version 2 & 3 and now version 4 has been released with Windows 8.1 & Server 2012 R2. Now it is very difficult to remember the each cmdlet. Built-in cmdlet mean dependency come into the picture. In that case managing the Active Directory with day by day work can be a difficult task but we have a solution and without dependency. Where we have legacy OS like 2008 mean built-in CMDLET is not present there.

We might don't have 2008 R2 where AD module is present in each DC. Now, how can we work with 2008(Non R2) where AD module is not present? Answer is simple using PowerShell ADSI. See the below example.


ADSI

 

PowerShell ADSI(Active Directory Services Interface) commands

1. How to find the users property.

$users1=[ADSI]"LDAP://cn=copy,cn=users,dc=contoso,dc=com"
$users1 | select *

2. How to find the Group members for a Group.

$test = [ADSI]"LDAP://CN=test,CN=Users,DC=contoso,DC=com"
$test.Member | ForEach-Object {[ADSI]"LDAP://$_"} | select samccountname, samaccounttype

3. Listing an OU Contents

PS C:\> $ou=[ADSI]"LDAP://ou=tech,dc=contoso,dc=com"
PS C:\> $ou.PSBase.Children
PS C:\> $ou.PSBase.Children | Format-Table sAMAccountName

4. Finding FSMO using .Net Namespace "System.DirectoryServices"

PS C:\> [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Domain]::GetCurrentDomain() | Select-Object *owner
PS C:\> [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Forest]::GetCurrentForest() | Select-Object *owner

5. Finding All attributes & Properties

Building PowerShell binary Module using Visual Studio

.Net 'namespace' & 'classe' can direct interact in PowerShell Runspace (Console). Example is given above like "System.DirectoryServices". It is .Net name space. You can build your binary CMDLET using visual studio as well. See the below link for building PowerShell binary Module using Visual Studio.
