Hi Experts

I'm a total noob if it comes to scripting.
I need a list of all the users on the domain that use mobile phones.  Our asset list is far from actual so I wanted to generate this list using a script.

So basically I need a script that check's if the "mobile" field in the Active Directory user properties is filled out on all user accounts in our domain.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi Insr33

This script should do what you need, this will only export people that have a live account and have something in their Mobile field.

Jawa29
Const ForWriting = 2

Set oRoot = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
vDomain = oRoot.Get("DefaultNamingContext") 

Set oConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set oCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
oConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
oConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set oCommand.ActiveConnection = oConnection
oCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000

oCommand.CommandText = "<LDAP://" & vDomain & ">;(&(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=65536)((objectCategory=Person)(!mobile='')));" &_
	"givenName,sn,mobile;Subtree"
Set oRS = oCommand.Execute

sTxt = "Firstname,Surname,Logon,Email,Mobile" & vbCrLf
Do While Not oRS.EOF
	sTxt = sTxt & oRS("givenName") & "," & oRS("sn") & "," & oRS("mobile") & vbCrLf
	oRS.MoveNext
Loop

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set oTextFile = oFSO.OpenTextFile("c:\UserExport.txt", ForWriting, True)
oTextFile.WriteLine(sTxt)
oTextFile.Close

Hi,

i have a simple query in DS command to achieve this task.

dsquery * -filter "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))" -limit 0 -attr displayName mobile > c:\User_mobile.txt

Just copy paste the above query in the system with ADMINPAK installed. it will pull the data and save in c:\user_mobile text ffile.

Please let me know if you have any issue in the same.

Note: this will only pull the active users, not the disabled user

Regards,
Prem
