LDAP User Account Properties: The WMI way

This is just something I ran across working on a recent project.  You can replace "." (local computer) with any valid NetBIOS name on your network (as long as you execute the script code with sufficient privileges to access the WMI Namespace)

strComputer = "." 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\directory\LDAP") 
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM ds_user",,48) 
For Each objItem in colItems 
    Wscript.Echo "-----------------------------------"
    Wscript.Echo "ds_user instance"
    Wscript.Echo "-----------------------------------"
    'Wscript.Echo "DS_objectGUID: " & objItem.DS_objectGUID
    'Wscript.Echo "DS_objectSid: " & objItem.DS_objectSid
    Wscript.Echo "DS_pwdLastSet: " & objItem.DS_pwdLastSet
    Wscript.Echo "DS_sAMAccountName: " & objItem.DS_sAMAccountName
    Wscript.Echo "DS_sAMAccountType: " & objItem.DS_sAMAccountType
    Wscript.Echo "DS_whenCreated: " & objItem.DS_whenCreated
    Wscript.Echo "DS_whenChanged: " & objItem.DS_whenChanged

Note that I commented out the GUID and SID properties.  That was for simplicity. You can fetch them to a variable, convert them to an appropriate data type, so that WSH / VBScript can correctly "echo" the results.  Cheers!
