Hi,

This code gets all users who do not have a manager.

DSQuery * -Filter "(&(sAMAccountType=805306368)(!manager=*))" -Attr sAMAccountName -Limit 0 >C:\UsersWithoutManager.txt

Can this be changed to query on a Specific OU rather than the whole domain.

Yes it can basically you can have the dsquery select only the ou you want it would be something like this.

dsquery ou dc=mydom,dc=com and then your filter expression. You would need to enter the full path to your OU like the mydom.com above.
