AD Query is a 3-in-1 search and reporting tool for user and computer objects within Active Directory. It’s sole purpose is to output all real-time Schema / AD / Exchange attributes for a specified AD object in an easy-to-read screen.

AD Query looks deep within the AD Schema and reveals all object attributes; if it is there, you’ll see it. Normally, you would need to open two or three Microsoft admin tools to accomplish the same task, especially when looking for mail-enabled or Kerberos object attributes.

AD Query is invaluable for quickly reviewing an object to determine if problems exist or information is correct. All of the report view results are exportable via simple copy / paste.
