I have a GUI which requires the user to enter their AD Credentials for certain tasks to run.
I want to be able to validate the users credentials and return an error if the password is incorrect. What is the best method for this?
I am using Get-Credential
Code: Select all
$Cred = Get-Credential -UserName $env:USERNAME.ToLower() -Message "Authentication"

The only way to validate credentials is to try and use them.
