$admNS = New-Object "Softerra.Adaxes.Adsi.AdmNamespace"
$admService = $admNS.GetServiceDirectly("localhost")

# Bind to the user
$userDN = "CN=John Smith,CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com"
$user = $admService.OpenObject("Adaxes://$userDN", $NULL, $NULL, 0)

# Update account expiration date
$expirationDate = (Get-Date).AddMonths(2) 
$user.Put("accountExpires",$expirationDate)
$user.SetInfo()
Import-Module Adaxes

$identity = "jsmith" # sAMAccountName
# $identity = "CN=John Smith,CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com"  # DN
# $identity = "{EB5FEB21-E648-42AD-B86C-89D3C6807953}" # GUID
# $identity = "S-1-5-21-573937-2149998-410785" # SID

$expirationDate = (Get-Date).AddMonths(2)
