      Hi Carl,

      I’m missing in the context of Fine Grained Password Policies the information aubout the Default Domain Password Policy. I would be nice to have an overview to all Password Policies.

      Hi Carl,

      I had been using your scripts for long and I absolutely love your work.

      Recently I had been working on a Multi Domain forest and having issues running your Active Directory Health Check and AD documentation scripts. This Domain is poorly designed and I need to figure out all the issues and help fix the domain.

      Most of the times the script will stop in between but when it runs completely it throws an error while saving the file :

      I have checked the access on the folder and do not see any issues with it.

        This is an error I cannot fix and has been a problem for ten years. Microsoft does not offer PowerShell for Word, so I am stuck using COMObjects. Those objects do not return any useful status information. When I tell Word to Save and Close the file, I have no idea if it worked or not. The only thing I can say to you to try is to start a new PowerShell session and rerun the script.
