Find empty groups in Active Directory using PowerShell script

Nice way to find empty groups in AD.

Little bit about Active Directory

You can find the empty groups from your domain using below powershell command.

Import-Module activedirectory
Get-ADGroup -Filter * -Properties Members | where {-not $_.members} | select Name | Export-Csv D:emprtygroups.csv –NoTypeInformation

To find empty groups from any specific OU present in other domain:-

Import-Module activedirectory
Get-ADGroup -Filter * -Properties Members -searchbase “OU fqdn” –server Domain.com:3268  | where {-not $_.members} | select Name | Export-Csv D:emprtygroups.csv –NoTypeInformation

[AutoIT] Creating a Welcome document for new joiners.

The WelcomePack is an application written in AutoIT to generate a Word document with information of the current login user. The generated document will be saved under a folder with the current user’s display name.

WelcomePack.exe will search for $Date, $Username, $tel, $ext, $Email, $ComputerName, $NetworkDrives, $Printers and replace them with the information gathered.

The information includes with the source listed:

  • logon name – Windows session
  • direct line – AD
  • extension number – Shoretel
  • email address – AD
  • distribution list the user is a member of – AD
  • computer name – Windows session
  • mapped drive – Windows session
  • connected printers – Windows session

 

System requirements:

  • Word 2010 or later
  • The template file named “!Default Template.doc”
  • MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver

 

*Shoretel DB credential  and server info removed

Minimal handling has been implement into the code.

[Oracle] Allowing Oracle ADI users to switch database with a batch file

Some ADI users will need to switch between database for different purposes. However, this would not be easy without having to change the network config files for Oracle.

I had created a batch file to allow users to change database by first preparing all the database registry, network config (tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora) and put them under C:\ADI. I had grant normal users the rights to change those files.

Below is the batch:

@ECHO off

ECHO.
ECHO ADI Menu.
ECHO 1. PRD 8000
ECHO 2. TST 8001
ECHO 3. UAT 8002

ECHO 6. Exit

[PowerShell] Send email from Gmail with attachment on PowerShell

Credits goes to 

I modified the script a little bit to pick up the log from c:\temp\ daily where the filename is made up of yyyymmdd

$a = Get-Date -Format yyyyMMdd

$smtpClient = new-object system.net.mail.smtpClient 
$smtpClient.Host = 'smtp.gmail.com'
$smtpClient.Port = 587
$smtpClient.EnableSsl = $true
$SMTPClient.Credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("username@gmail.com", "password");

$emailFrom = "sender@domain.com"
$emailTo = "receipt1@domain.com,receipt2@domain.com"
$Subject = "Backup log for " +$a
$Body = "Please refer to attached logfile."

$emailMessage = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
$emailMessage.From = $EmailFrom
$emailMessage.To.Add($EmailTo)
$emailMessage.Subject = $Subject
$emailMessage.Body = $Body
$emailMessage.Attachments.Add("C:\temp\libra_backup"+ $a+".txt")
$SMTPClient.Send($emailMessage)
$emailMessage.Attachments.Dispose()

[PowerShell] Retrieving hard disk health through SMART status

To get the SMART status of the hard disk with PowerShell, you could run the following:

Get-WmiObject win32_diskdrive|Select-Object Status

 

Below is a sample script to check multiple PC’s SMART status by getting a list of PC names from a text file.

$allComputers=Get-Content -Path C:\temp\pc.txt

foreach($computer in $allComputers)
{

$isonline=test-connection -Quiet -count 2 -ComputerName $computer
if($isonline)
{

$diskStatus= Get-WmiObject win32_diskdrive -ComputerName $computer|Select-Object -ExpandProperty Status

Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green "$computer is online and disk status is $diskStatus";
$diskStatus="";
}
else
{
Write-Host -ForegroundColor Red "$computer is offline";
}

}
