Comparing contents of OUs

Hi there,

I have two OUs containing lists of users.  I think that both OUs contain the same users, but I need to double check this.  I need for both OUs to contain exactly the same users as each other.

I would like to know if there is a way to compare these two OUs so I can see if there are users that exist in one OU but not the other?

Thanks!

peterkennedy,

you could output the list of each OU to a file using the dsquery commands

This script may help...save as CompareOUs.vbs and after modifiying the OU1 and OU2 LDAP entries, double-click it to run...

'CompareOUs.vbs
Dim arrOU1():OU1="LDAP://OU=FirstOU,dc=domain,dc=com"
Dim arrOU2():OU2="LDAP://OU=SecondOU,dc=domain,dc=com"
x=0
Set colItems = GetObject (OU1)
For Each objItem in colItems
    ReDim Preserve arrOU1(x)
    arrOU1(x)=objItem.Name
    x=x+1
Next
x=0
Set colItems = GetObject (OU2)
For Each objItem in colItems
    ReDim Preserve arrOU2(x)
    arrOU2(x)=objItem.Name
    x=x+1
Next
For x = 0 to ubound(arrOU1)
  If arrOU1(x) <> arrOU2(x) Then
      wscript.echo arrOU1(x) & " appears to be different."
  End If
