adfind -default -f "(&(objectclass=user)(objectcategory=person))" title >> c:\data\ad utility\output\users.csv

To find only the unique titles how can I modify the above query?

Thanks

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

So you can use Chandar's example and output any details you want, in his example he just outputted the title (DN will also be outputted in that example)
You can just add addributes if you want more.  A good page that shows list of attributes
http://www.selfadsi.org/user-attributes-w2k3.htm
Now if you want to output things that have dates and times you can decode them by adding the -tdca switch for example
If you want a csv output add -csv
Thanks

by unique I mean the following if I have 200 systems engineers and 100 associates, I just want to be able to capture 1 system engineer and 1 associate.  Basically, I want to know how many titles we have in the company.

In that case I'd export to excel,  adfind is not going to give you a count of all the titles, it will just return them.
Now you can do something like
adfind -default -f  "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(titele=associate)"  -c  
That will give you a count of all users whose title is associate
Thanks

Just Try this out with ADFind Tool

According you can change to the script file.

You can also create a saved query in AD Users & computers with the same LDAP queries as provided above. (Custom query type)
DEFINE > Find drop down > Custom Query...
Enter like this:
(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(title=*manager*)
It will auto add the &'s. Notice you can wildcard also... in case you have Engineer-1, Engineer-2, etc..

That would tell you in the GUI how many, and let you view any if you wanted.

when I run this, it checks other OU's other than "offices".  Is my syntax correct?  Basically I want to query only the Offices OU and get the name and the title.

adfind -default -f "(&(objectclass=user)(objectcategory=person)(ou=offices, ou=exchange,dc=dc,dc=howrey,dc=net))" distinguishedName title >> c:\data\ad utility\output\users.csv
