    Survey: what are the most common tasks that you complete in Active Directory?

    I'm working on expanding my lzPingLaunch tool to include Active Directory tools, but rather than programming randomly based purely on what I do within Active Directory, I thought I'd do a bit of a survey on here.

    I've already got things like the following in mind:

    • Adding/Removing users
    • Resetting passwords
    • Editing group memberships of users/computers/groups
    • Adding/Removing groups
    • Editing basic user details (name, username, expiry etc...)


    Is there anything else people commonly do in the active directory?

    Moving computers
    Resetting passwords
    Adding new users (needs to create a share and set permissions as well)
    Setting the location of a computer (for print scripts to use)
