I want my script to grab the rootdse and create the accounts that OU

this is what I have now

add-pssnapin quest.activeroles.admanagement
$location = get-location
$RootDSE = get-qadrootdse | select-object DefaultNamingContextDN
Import-CSV "$Location\DCESAPUsers.csv" |`
ForEach-Object { New-QADUser -Name $_.Name -SamAccountName $_.Name -ParentContainer OU=Accounts,$RootDSE ; enable-QADUser $_.name }

if I run that it errors out with this:


New-QADUser : Cannot convert 'System.Object[]' to the type 'Quest.ActiveRoles.ArsPowerShel
lSnapIn.Data.IdentityParameter' required by parameter 'ParentContainer'. Specified method
is not supported.
At line:4 char:84
+ ForEach-Object { New-QADUser -Name $_.Name -SamAccountName $_.Name -ParentContainer <<<<
  OU=Accounts,$RootDSE ; enable-QADUser $_.name }
