How To Enable Extra Object Info In Active Directory Using AcctInfo.dll

Quick heads up, it’s an oldie but goodie.

Ever wanted to see all that extra user info in AD such as password last change/next expiry without having to go into ADSIedit or resorting to the command line? Well you can!

Download and install the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit from here

Next register the AcctInfo.dll found in C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\ you can do this using the following command:

regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\Acctinfo.dll”

Open open the AD Users and Computers MMC and open a user, then check out the new Additional Account Info tab, sweet!

Note: I’m using Windows 7 x64 Professional and only get the extra tab when browsing to the user in it’s OU rather than running a Find, haven’t tested if this is just Win 7 – AD 2003 compatibility issue but it’s worth noting.
