Remove all disabled user from an Active Directory Group with Power Shell using Quest Active Roles AD Management

The following code snippet which I ran through PowerShell ISE (learn how to get it on Windows Server) will remove all disabled users from a particular group.  Useful for the end of year / start of year clean up in a school environment.

You will need the ActiveRoles Management Shell for Active Directory, available by clicking here which were made by Quest Software, now DELL.

Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

Get-QADGroup -SearchRoot "" | Foreach-Object {
     $group = $_
     Get-QADGroupMember -Identity $group -Disabled -Type User | Foreach-Object{
         Write-Host "Removing '$($_.Name)' from group '$group'" -Foreground Green
         Remove-QADGroupMember -Identity $group -Member $_ 
     }
 }

Swap out with a distinguished name of the group you want to remove disabled users from.  Once you execute it, it will run through the group and remove any user objects that are disabled.
