Powershell Active Directory 2: Check, enable and disable child OU protect object from accidental deletion

This script is second part of  article Powershell Active Directory 1: Check, enable and disable child OU protect object from accidental deletion, In this script I have added enable and disable option, Usage are the same as first script. here is my complete OU hierarchy, There are two newly added options to the this GUI script as below screenshot.

Reports option shows complete given parent OU and its sub child OU inventory information in table gridview.
Enable option is helpful when you want set configuration to make sure all child organization units under Parent OU are compliant on Protect from accidental deletion.
Disable option can be used, if complete Parent Ou and its sub child Ous need to be deleted, but you need check Protect from accidental deletion on every child Ou manually, This script helps to achieve the task.

Before executing script you require active directory module to be installed to perform further task. Check Different ways to bypass Powershell execution policy :.ps1 cannot be loaded because running scripts is disabled. After launching script it shows GUI menu with few more options on the screen. Reports option give you same report and procedure is same shown in the earlier blog, I am checking enable function, (choosing disable option is reverse action and has same procedure as enable), pressing OK shows message box that once the information is generated on the gridview, and for further process you need to filter or select OU rows on it.

Once the list is generated, select the OU list from the gridview table, you can use filter or pressing shift or control key to select your own choice of list, make sure you select your OUs. Chosen list is highlighted in skyblue color, once done with the filtration and selection press OK button. Cancel or closing will not configure anything and it will come out of script.

It gos through the selected list and open a log file in notepad, with related what action your are performing, Enable or Disable on the header, and main thing Ou name with success or failure messages, this is temp file and location is your $env:TEMP.

In this script I have used few useful cmdlets from ActiveDirectory powershell modules Set-AdObject, Get-AdOrganizationUnit and Out-GridView. You can download this script here Set-AdSubOUDeleteProtection.ps1, also this is available on github.com.
