Find Additional AD Account Information


I like to add an extra tab named ‘Additional info’ in the AD users’ property, as it gives me more information on the users’ account, like when the account was created, or when the password has been reset.

To install it, firstly you need to download the acctinfo.dll file and place it somewhere on your DC server. In the case, I put it under the C driver. Next, you need to register this dll file in your Windows system by running C:\ REGSVR32 ACCTINFO.DLL (if you want to remove it, just add  /u to the command to unregister it)

NOTE: If you are using a 64bit Windows server, you need to run ‘dsa.msc –32’ to launch the 32bit mode ‘AD users and computers’ management console.
