Sample script that searches Active Directory for all the group accounts created on October 1, 2007 or later. The whenCreated attribute is replicated to the Global Catalog. This means you can connect to a Global Catalog server and search across the forest for all groups created on a specified date.

$strFilter = "(&(objectClass=Group)(whenCreated>=20071001000000.0Z))"

$objDomain = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry

$objSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$objSearcher.SearchRoot = $objDomain
$objSearcher.PageSize = 1000
$objSearcher.Filter = $strFilter

$colProplist = "name"
foreach ($i in $colPropList){$objSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add($i)}

$colResults = $objSearcher.FindAll()

foreach ($objResult in $colResults)
    {$objItem = $objResult.Properties; $}
