I have windows 2003 ad setup in my office and do regular checks on disabled users and some other general checks by using the search filter methods .

Can anyone tell me other ways which i can use regularly and have them as saved queries in the ADUC.
 
This will help me from multiple clicks each time.
Also some useful checks if any

To create the Saved Query. Follow these instructions.

1. Open ADUC, right click Saved Queries > New > Query
2. Define Query > Custom Search > Advanced tab > paste the LDAP filter here, that is

Active Directory Users and Computers

1. This shows all contacts
(objectClass=contact)

2. This shows all Security Groups
(&(objectClass=group)(sAMAccountType=268435456))

3. This shows all Distribution Groups
(&(objectClass=group)(sAMAccountType=268435457))

4. This shows all NTLogins with mailbox
(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(homeMDB=*))

5. This shows all NTLogins without mailbox
(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(!homeMDB=*))

Save this query and this will now always give you an up to date list of objects meeting this criteria. I have given you 5 different types out of 100's and you need to save each as a separate saved query.

At the end you will have 5 different saved queries.
