I'm looking for a way to pull the First and Last name or account name along with fax number from a users AD account and place it into a file. Or have it displayed so I can take it and move it into a file. I am on a 2008 AD structure.

    I assume you have fax numbers in active directory?

    I would recommend Powershell and Quest Active directory tools, then you could use something like:

    Get-QADUser | Format-Table Lastname, FirstName, Fax > 'C:\FaxNumbers.txt'

    Open in new window

    That will get every user in the domain.

    Yes - Is there anyway to do this, say, for an entire OU at a time?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, just adjust the first part to:
    Get-QADUser -LDAPFilter "OuPath"

    Open in new window
