Password auditing of a domain traditionally involves obtaining copy of the ntds.dit and performing some offline analysis which can be time consuming. The DSInternals PowerShell Module has an Active Directory password auditing cmdlet which performs checks for default, duplicate, empty and weak passwords. The audit can be performed against a domain online via DCSync, saving the need to obtain a copy of the ntds.dit. This can be of benefit if regular password audits are being performed.
