• Microsoft Active Directory Documentation Script Update Version 2.20

    September 28, 2018

    Active Directory, PowerShell

    #Version 2.20 released 28-Sep-2018

    • Added Domain Functional Level of 7 for Windows Server 2016
    • Added Forest Functional Level of 7 for Windows Server 2016
    • Added Domain Schema version 88 for Server 2019 Preview
    • Added to Domain Information:
      • Last logon replication interval
      • Public key required password rolling (2012+)
    • Added to Forest Information, Domain Controllers:
      • Operation System
      • Server Core (Y/N)
    • Changed “renamed” to “changed” as it was freaking people out thinking I was renaming their domain or computer
    • Changed all but the Word and HTML arrays from “@() +=” to “New-Object System.Collections.ArrayList .Add()”
    • Changed the code where I checked for Singletons and -is [array] to use @() around the cmdlets so the result is always an array. Thanks to fellow CTP Sam Jacobs for the tip. This reduced the code by almost 500 lines.
    • Changed the functions getting the computer WMI hardware and service info to use “New-Object System.Collections.ArrayList .Add()” for Word and  HTML tables
    • Changed the width of the Domain Controllers table to accommodate the new columns
    • Change the width of the AD Schema Items table to match the other tables
    • Remove all the duplicate $VarName = $Null from Function ProcessDomains
    • Reorder Change Log so the most recent is on top and the oldest is at the bottom
    • Reorder most of the domain properties to be in alphabetical order
    • Reorder most of the forest properties to be in alphabetical order
    • Updated Exchange schema version information
