I'm tryng to get a csv file that will contain all users with:

First Name+Last Name+Has a mailbox+Has a manager configured.
And I want to exclude all the diabled users from that query !

This is the way I can pull out all users that are not service accounts and also are not kind of wierd accounts like "test" users and so on.

I need the exact sysntax for CSVDE and also LDAP query in ADUC.

I'm not sure on CSVDE as I don't use that, but the ADUC query would be:

This answers about the LDAP query but I need also to put it on a CSV with all coloumns.
So this list is filtered ok, but can't be shown.

So again, I need the CSVDE option so I can get the list.

Here's the csvde syntax:

csvde -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(homeMDB=*)(manager=*))" -l "givenname, sn" -f c:\users.csv

This will output output all enabled users with mailboxes and have a manager assigned.  It will only return the dn, lastname and firstname.  If you want it to return all attributes remote the -l option:

csvde -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(homeMDB=*)(manager=*))"  -f c:\users.csv

You can also just use the ""(&(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(homeMDB=*)(manager=*))"  query in ADUC as a custom query and then just Export list.

Hope that helps
