Hello,

I have searched through about 10 pages, but have yet to find the information. I have found some similar queries, but nothing I can use. I need a VB script that will give me the UserNames, the OU the users are in, and what their Home folder is set to under the Profile Tab in Active Directory.

Thank you!

Does it have to be a VB script?  This would be really easy to do with powershell and a free download of quest ad cmdlets using get-qaduser

I was asked for a VB script and still need a VB script; however, I'd be willing to look into your solution.

Hi,

I am at home and cant test this on a domain.

homeDirectory should work

think adsPath contains the OU but is not only the OU. will probably need extracting/trimming
On Error Resume Next

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

strUser = objSysInfo.UserName
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strUser)

Wscript.Echo objUser.AdsPath
homeDirectory=objSysInfo.Get("homeDirectory")
WScript.Echo homeDirectory

Open in new window

Hi, try this script.  It will list the homeDirectory value for all of your AD users into a CSV file.

Regards,

Rob.
strResults = "UserHomeFolders.csv"
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objResults = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strResults, True)
objResults.WriteLine """Username"",""OU"",""HomeFolder"""

Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection

objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
strCommandText = "<LDAP://" & strDomain & ">;(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user));adsPath,samAccountName,homeDirectory;Subtree"  
objCommand.CommandText = strCommandText
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
	strSamAccountName = objRecordSet.Fields("samAccountName").Value
	strOU = Mid(objRecordSet.Fields("adsPath").Value, InStr(objRecordSet.Fields("adsPath").Value, ",") + 1)
	strHomeFolder = objRecordSet.Fields("homeDirectory").Value
	objResults.WriteLine """" & strSamAccountName & """,""" & strOU & """,""" & strHomeFolder & """"
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop
objResults.Close

MsgBox "Finished. Please see " & strResults

I'll have to test these out and see if they give me the result I'm looking for, but they both look like wins to me.
