Active Directory Cleanup Tool

The Active Directory Cleanup Tool will quickly identify stale and inactive users and computers in your Active Directory Domain. Inactive objects in Active Directory can provide unauthorized access to sensitive data and resources. If these accounts are not properly managed or disabled, they can be used by a malicious actor to breach your network and data. The AD Pro Cleanup Tool makes it easy to find stale objects in your domain and take actions such as disabling or removing the accounts.

  • Easily find stale user accounts
  • Get expired, disabled and users with no logons
  • Bulk move and disable accounts
  • Find empty security groups
  • Find users that have not logged on within x number of days

Move or Disable Stale User and Computer Accounts

The AD Cleanup Tool lets you move and disable stale accounts. You can easily run a clean up on single or multiple accounts in Active Directory. The recommended way to clean up stale accounts is to move them to an inactive OU, disable them for x days and then delete the account.

Cleanup Group Policy Objects

Just like user and computer accounts, there can be stale or unused GPOs in your environment. These unused or disabled GPOs can make a mess of your AD and cause confusion with other Administrators. The AD Pro Toolkit provides GPO reports and makes it easy to find unused GPOs.

To find unused GPOs click on Group Policy Report -> All GPOs

Any GPO that is not used will have the location blank. This means the GPO is not linked to the domain or an OU so it is currently not in use.
