    (1) This Perl script conveniently mails a formatted report (username, fullname, date of expiration) into your inbox listing accounts whose password will expire between two user-specified dates.

    NWAdmin, ConsoleOne, and even iManager have no native means to display results for this type of query.

    Identifying such accounts can be especially useful prior to a major IT project, migration, or an upgrade that could last for an extended period of time -- during which you want to avoid causing additional administrative complexity and keep things simpler for your end-users.

    (2) Additionally, this script can also now alter the expiration date of those identified accounts by:

    • Advancing all accounts' expiration to the same future date, or
    • Alternatively advancing each account by "x" number of days beyond
    • their current password expiration date, maintaining their naturally staggered pattern(keeps your Helpdesk from being potentially overwhelmed with password issues if there's a problem).

    Both of these update-type selections upgrade the formatted report to include before-and-after styled results detailing each user account's information.
