Hi

I asked the question below which was answered greatly...does anyone know how I can do this via Powershell in Windows 2008?

>>
Hi

We're running AD 2008 with 2008 Server member servers too. For some users we have a custom application that sets special AD attributes, these attributes are named

"customSync" - possible values YES, NO, SP1
"customEmail" - possible values PARTNER, SMTP1, SMTP2

What I'd like to do is run a query in AD to find users with some of these values, as below:

1. customSync=SP1
2. customEmail = SMTP1
3. customSync=YES *and* customEmail=SMTP2
4. customSync=YES *or& customEmail=SMTP2

I'd like to use ADUC to do this. I guess I can create a query within there, but after that I'm lost? All I can see is how to set queries for existing attributes (e.g. display name).

Could someone advise? I guess I need to run some sort of Custom Query but am not sure of which one and also the syntax to use for the four situations above.

Hey iSiek :)

I would use the Quest AD cmdlets, it make it easier.

get-qaduser -searchroot "OU=USERSOU,DC=DOMAIN,DC=Local" -LDAPFILTER "(customSync=SP1)" | Select name, samaccountname | Export-csv c:\users.csv

get-qaduser -searchroot "OU=USERSOU,DC=DOMAIN,DC=Local" -LDAPFILTER "(&(customSync=YES)(customEmail=SMTP2))" | Select name, samaccountname | Export-csv c:\users.csv

get-qaduser -searchroot "OU=USERSOU,DC=DOMAIN,DC=Local" -LDAPFILTER "(|(customSync=YES)(customEmail=SMTP2))" | Select name, samaccountname | Export-csv c:\users.csv
