I'm hoping this is a very easy question. I've tried looking through existing Q&As but couldn't find anything similar. I'm trying to develop a Search Query in ADUC. What I need is a list of active users that have an office location populated with one of the mulitple options I give. So, the list will show me Jon in office 5, Joe in office 8, etc.

Here's what I have -
(&(&(objectCategory=user)(physicalDeliveryOfficeName=5)(objectCategory=user)(physicalDeliveryOfficeName=8)(&(&(objectCategory=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)))))

Any help or direction will be greatly appreciated.
thanks.

To start with, unless you have indexed objectClass, you need to search on "(&(objectcategory=Person)(objectClass=User))

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to craft the following query:

Show me users who are not disabled AND who are in office locations 3 OR 4 OR 5 OR...

I don't have a testbed in front of me right now, but it'll be something similar to the following:

"(&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)(|(physicalDeliveryOfficeName=5)(physicalDeliveryOfficeName=8)))"

I tried what you posted. I get an error "not a valid string". I tried to add using Custom Search by field user contains 8. That's how I got the string that I originally posted.

I will keep trying to tweak. Any other info would be helpful too.
thanks.

I got it! Something was strange on my existing query. I created a new one from scratch, and that seemed to work! Thanks for your prompt response.
