Issue
How to display the detailed information of an Active Directory User's account.

Environment
Windows Active Directory

Cause
While troubleshooting an suspected permissions or configuration issue, it may be necessary to view and verify a particular Active Directory User's account information
in order to determine there are no issues with the account and/or the account has been configured with appropriate parameters.  (i.e. the password has not expired or recently been changed and
the User has been included in the appropriate groups)

Resolution
From a computer that is a member of the domain, open a command-prompt and run the following command replacing <user name> with the name
of the user you are interested in.

NET USER "<user name>" /DOMAIN

This same command can retrieve the local computer user account information as well by removing the /DOMAIN  parameter and providing the name of a local user's account.
