Cjwdev Discount Bundles Now Available

February 15, 2013 — 7 Comments

Recently I’ve been asked quite a few times if I offer any discounted collections of all of my products, so I’m pleased to announce that I now have an IT Pro bundle available for each type of license that can be purchased for my products.

You can find the details and prices for the current bundles here:


I will be adding more bundles in the future as more products are released, but for now at least anyone that wants to purchase the same licenses for all of my tools can get 20% off by using these standard bundles.

    I’ve been using your tools and they are helping me a lot. Do you have any tool that check the owner of computer? Many IT guys are joining computer on AD, but they are not moving them to the correct OU, so I have a lot accounts on OU computer on AD. Can you help me on it? thanks


      If you mean you want to see which user is logging on to that computer, I’m afraid not. Unfortunately that information is not stored in AD anywhere, so the only way to find out is to query each machine directly or try to make use of logon auditing and the event logs on your DCs. There are some third party tools out there that can help make this a bit easier, such as this one from Netwrix: http://www.netwrix.com/logon_auditing.html


        I mean to see who Joined computer Account into AD Domain.


        Ah ok, well again I think the only place that information is stored is in the security event logs and only if you have the relevant auditing enabled. The way I got around the same problem you have is to do the following:
        Use the redircmp command to make it so that all newly joined computers end up in a specific OU instead of the default Computers container, then assign a GPO to that OU that displays a message on boot up saying something like “This computer is still in the default OU, please contact your system admin and ask them to move it to the correct location”. That way your admins get a reminder when they first boot the machine up after joining it to the domain and even if after that they forget then the users will see this message every time they boot up and will ring the helpdesk so you can move it to the correct location.
        More info on the redircmp command here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324949


          Hello my friend, I found a script that allowed me to do that. Please see below. Is it possible to include that on AD Tidy or AD Free Edition? Sorry for disturbing you.

          ‘ Specify DN of the OU.
          strOU = “CN=Computers,DC=contoso,DC=com”

          ‘ Bind to the OU object.
          Set objOU = GetObject(“LDAP://” & strOU)

          ‘ Filter on computer objects.
          objOU.Filter = Array(“computer”)

          ‘ Enumerate computers.
          For Each objComputer In objOU
          Set objSecurityDescriptor = objComputer.Get(“ntSecurityDescriptor”)
          Wscript.Echo objComputer.sAMAccountName
          Wscript.Echo ” Owner: ” &objSecurityDescriptor.Owner
          ‘Wscript.Echo ” Operating System: ” & objComputer.operatingSystem
          ‘Wscript.Echo ” Operating System Version: ” & objComputer.operatingSystemVersion
          ‘Wscript.Echo ” Operating System Service Pack: ” & objComputer.operatingSystemServicePack



        Ah I see that just gets the owner in the permissions – that wouldn’t necessarily tell you the person that created the computer because you can change the owner in an AD object’s permissions just as you can change the owner in a file’s permissions.
        So I wouldn’t really like to include this as an “owner” field in AD Tidy against a computer as it could cause some confusion (especially as I think most people would expect the owner to represent the user that uses that PC rather than the admin that joined it to the domain).
        However, in the new version of AD Tidy that I am working on you will have the ability to call an external script for each computer account found in the results and pass in variables such as the name of the account. So you could use this feature to call your script and pass in each computer name, and then your script could append the computer name and owner to a spreadsheet. You can read more about the new version here: https://blog.cjwdev.co.uk/2013/02/01/ad-tidy-2-0-features/


    Excellent tool. Very useful. If you can add reports about the sharing in Entire domain loud be very good too. Something like ShareEnum from sysinternals.com.
