comment How do i remove a password expiration policy?
0x00800000 ADS_UF_PASSWORD_EXPIRED The user password has expired. This flag is created by the system using data from the Pwd-Last-Set attribute and the domain policy. If the password has already expired, this value in UserAccountControl will be turned on. Adding this reference for future use :D

comment last time an AD user has logged in?
This only works if the forest/domain is 2003 Native or above, by the way. Before 2003 the DC had its own record of the last login for each user. Dumpsec (mentioned below) is pretty goood to get last true logon by spamming each domain controller and puts together a list of who logged in when on each DC.

Oh yes, same thing for me too. Luckily in my case the server was in the data room. I must have flown down there to fix it. No one noticed.

we had a courier do the same thing. Not quite a sysadmin accident though, although a strange metal box suddenly appeared over the Big Red Button after that.
