2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

So yesterday my customer want to export user objects on their AD, but only on Deleted Objects container which can be seen from LDP or other tools.

So the simple answer is you can use ldifde

ldifde -f output.txt -s <dc name> -d "cn=deleted objects,dc=domain,dc=com" -r (objectclass=user) -p subtree -x -l DN, samaccountname

-l switch is for limiting amount of information, in this case I use DN and samaccountname. You can export it to txt or csv also. Smile

Btw, they still running Windows 2003 forest, so cannot use AD Recycle Bin, but can reanimate the deleted object.
