Experts,

      the code below is not executing as expected. I am getting an error "cmdlet set -qaduser at command pipeline position supply values for following parameters  Identity:

I expected the code to just go through and change the two users to the new password and write both password changes to the text file. I am only getting one user change being piped out to text file.

Please advise

$users = @(
"Reset1"
"Reset2"
) 
$users | %{
set-qaduser -Userpassword 'Test'
Write-host "$($_) password was reset"
get-qaduser -samaccountname $_.samaccountname | Select samaccountname, passwordlastset | out-file c:\ResetCrew.txt -noclobber
}

Without testing it looks like you are missing one part, just add get-qaduser like below and test.

$users = @(  
"Reset1"  
"Reset2"  
)  
$users | %{  
get-qaduser -samaccountname $_ | set-qaduser -Userpassword 'Test'  
Write-host "$($_) password was reset"  
get-qaduser -samaccountname $_.samaccountname | Select samaccountname, passwordlastset | out-file c:\ResetCrew.txt -noclobber  
}
