Hello there,

You can do it like this:
Get-Content book1.csv | ForEach-Object {

  $Computer = $_

  ([ADSI]"WinNT://$Computer").PsBase.Children | 
    Where-Object { $_.Class -eq "User" } |
    Select-Object `
      @{n='ComputerName';e={ $Computer }},
      @{n='Name';e={ $_.Name[0] }}, 
      @{n='Disabled';e={ If ($_.UserFlags[0] -BAnd 2) { $True } else { $False } }}

} | Export-Csv Output.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

This snippet exports the account name and whether or not the account is disabled.
