AD-COIT (Active Directory – Computer Object Inventory Tool)


AD-COIT (Active Directory – Computer Object Inventory Tool) is an open source tool that automates the asset inventory process in Active Directory, with a focus on simplicity and portability. While the target audience for AD-COIT is small-to-midsized Active Directory environments, it can easily be modified for larger environments and different use-cases.

The tool will capture: workstation hardware information, operating system version and configuration information, installed software, enumerate local admin groups, and more.

Usage example: 

  • ADCOIT.vbs -f -m >inventoryreport.txt

– Dependencies:

  • DSQUERY for FSMO role detection (will run without it)
  • Able to query target machines on port 135 from the machine where ADCOIT is running

You can download it from SourceForge.

Here’s a short video of it in action…
