Powershell - AD GUI

I'd like to put together a script that will perform a mass disable / enable of user accounts based on OU. I don't want the end users of this script to need to manually enter the distinguished name for the said OU.

One of the tools I used in VBS was a pop up box that rendered the AD tree, basically the same as the left half of the AD Users and Computers snapin. Is there anything like that available for powershell that I can use to retrieve the DN with?

Take a look at PrimalForms. They have a prop version and a free comunity edition. This makes it easy to create your own powershell GUIs.

If you wanted to use a GUI, you could do it with PrimalForms:

Then just make your GUI once, it will show you the code for it, then you don't have to make another GUI.

You can do the free trial just for this script if you'd like.

As a workaround to a complete GUI:
I would recommend getting a list of the OU's you'd want to browse, and hardcode them into your Powershell Script.  Then have the user select it based on 1-10 or however many options you'd like to give them.

HTH,
