Bulk change specific permissions for users

A friend of mine recently had problems regarding uploading certificates to GAL. As a matter of fact the users were unable to upload certificates when they choose "Publish To GAL". In this case the most errors you get is "Microsoft office Outlook was unable to publish your certificates. The server may be offline or your certificates may be invalid". 

He was pretty much sure that the server is available, so we decided to re-check the security permissions for user objects and we found the problem.

However we do have the concept of dynamic objects in Active Directory (I promise to speak on that on another articleWink), but this one was completely different. The client wanted to have a security group which automatically removes the disabled users from it. So I started a lovely conversation with my lovely friend PowerShell. Cool
