I am a relatively active Twitter user, and enjoy the many discussions I have with people of varied points of view and experiences on the site. One of the things I don’t enjoy, is the inevitable trolls and bots. Luckily, there are a number of tools out there that evaluates an account or tweet.

Last week, I showed you how you can easily find the OU to use when looking for the members of a specific OU. Today, I’d like to show you how I use that information. The background was that we use AD groups to control access to network shares. In order for IT support to know who is authorized to approve requests for access to these shares, we use the Managed By tab, assigning the owner of the network share as manager:
Using PowerShell, I was building a script to identify a subset of the groups in a given organizational unit (OU).
