Quickly find AD user password expiration date

Knowing when a password should expire is sometimes useful information.
To find out all users password expiration date, open up powershell on the DC and run:

Get-ADUser -filter {Enabled -eq $True -and PasswordNeverExpires -eq $False} –Properties “DisplayName”, “msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed” | Select-Object -Property “Displayname”,@{Name=”ExpiryDate”;Expression={[datetime]::FromFileTime($_.”msDS-UserPasswordExpiryTimeComputed”)}}

It will output for you a human readable list such as in the above post screenshot.
I have tested and can confirm that the above script is working on Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, 2016 & 2019.

WPBakery Page Builder not working in chrome and shows console errors

Just a quick one, hoping it will help someone,

If you have a wordpress site with WPBakery Page Builder running on it, and find the frontend builder is not working, and if you also happen to use cloudflare – Rocket Loader™ is your issue.

Go to cloudflare and under speed –> Optimization –> turn off Rocket Loader™

Go back to WordPress and within a few mins, or the time your cache takes to update – your visual composer/WPBakery Page Builder will be working again.

Force Active Directory replication on a domain controller

To force Active Directory replication, on the server which needs forced to update, run using elevated CMD:

repadmin /syncall /AeD

A = All Partitions
e = Cross Site (Enterprise)
D = Show server name in output.

This will initiate a pull replication.

OR if you are already on on your main DC, and need to update any other servers in the AD, you can do a push replication:

repadmin /syncall /APeD

A = All Partitions
e = Cross Site (Enterprise)
D = Show server name in output.
P = Push

The technet article with further info can be found here:


Perhaps, you like me are trying to move away from the old CMD comandlines, and migrate into PowerShell – if that is the case, bad news -currently there is no update alternative for repadmin in powershell – the Get-ADReplication commands are great for troubleshooting but offer no easy interface for updating AD.
