Και ένα μικρό Script για να ειδοποιούνται οι χρήστες πως οι κωδικοί τους θα λήξουν σε X μέρες :)

Script to notify users of password change
#What date is it?
#How many days before should we notify the user?
#Specify a From address
#Specify a subject for the message!
$Subject="Your account will expire soon! Action Required"
#Specify the SMTP Server !

#Find all users that will need a password change within the specified days, We are searching for all Enabled accounts , with Password never expires option not set and not containing a $ sign (Domains with trust accounts,GMSA accounts ...etc, we do not need those)
$Expiring=Get-ADUser -filter {Enabled -eq $True -and PasswordNeverExpires -eq $False -and Name -notlike "*$*"} –Properties "DisplayName", "msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed" ,"PasswordExpired" , "Mail","UserPrinciPalName"
#Loop through each account
foreach ($Account in $Expiring)
    #And get its expiring date, convert it to a more readable format as  msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed is a calculated field and it is a mess
        #If you do find an account that has not expired and the remaining days are less than the days specified
        if ($Account.PasswordExpired -eq $false -and ($ExpiringDate - $Today).Days -lt $Days )
            #Start the notification process
            #Get the actual UPN in the domain as this may differ from the users email
            #Calculate the days left
            #Inform the user
            Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer $SMTPServer -From $From -To $Account.Mail -Subject $Subject  -Body "Your AD Password for account  $AccountUPN will expire in $DaysLeft days! Please change it."
