Find All Locked-Out Accounts

Written by on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 5:46 - 0 Comments

Use Saved Queries to quickly locate all locked out user accounts.

You can use the Saved Queries feature of Windows Server 2003 to query Active Directory for any locked-out accounts. Just open the Active Directory Users and Computers console, right-click on Saved Queries in the console tree and select New –> Query. Type a name and description for the query, specify a query root (where in your namespace your query begins searching), and click the Define Query button. Since there’s no default option for finding locked-out accounts in the Common Queries box, select Custom Search instead to open the Find Custom Search box. Then select the Advanced tab and enter the following LDAP string in the Enter LDAP Query textbox:

(&(&(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(lockoutTime:1.2.840.113556.1.4.804:=4294967295))))

Click OK twice to create and run the saved query.

The string works on Windows Server 2003 SP1.

Update: Here’s another LDAP query that finds all locked out accounts:

(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(lockoutTime>=1)) ')}
