I have used dsquery to locate my users, however, I was hoping to get some more information, such as demographic data, profile(s), smtp, etc.

If there's anything like that or a way to do it naively in 2k3, that would be great.

If the software you want to pull the information has LDAP (Light Weight Directory Access Protocal) you can pull almost any any data you want from AD.

Most databases will have an ldap connector

you can use csvde to export data by command line

You can actually do this with dsquery by piping it into dsget
For example
dsquery user -name * | dsget user -samid -profile -email
Are you open to using a tool like ADFIND by MVP Joe Richards or using Powershell with the Quest Cmdlets.  I know they are not native but can be very helpful for pulling reports.
Thanks

Thanks for the information.  I couldn't get the dsquery to work, syntax I assume.  Thanks for the information, it's helped a great deal.
