Ever wondered if you could get daily reports of new objects that have joined the domain? If so you are in luck, there is a script I was able to obtain from ScriptVault sometime ago that will do basic reporting in a whole new level. I was initially intrigued by the description I knew it had to be something interested, so I proceeded to read through it before testing it out. Several modifications will need to be made so it can fully function in each domain, but once it’s ready it will run without any hiccups. The script will report on all objects created in Active Directory over the past day and email an HTML formatted report.
The HTML email reports is the best part about the script. It can be scheduled to run at certain time once a day to provide detailed reports of what new objects have been created and where they currently reside on as shown below:
As shown above the reports come out nicely formatted, and provide System Administrators with more simple ways to manage their Active Directory environments.
NOTE: Configure the STATIC VARIABLE ASSIGNMENTS and test before you run in a live environment. The script can be downloaded Here.You will need to change the .docx format back to .vbs so it can be executed properly.
