Help With a Powershell Command

I have a PowerShell command to find all users that do not have the fields "Enable Federation", and " Enable Enhanced Presence" checked for Office communicator.

The command that works is;
Get-QADUser –Sizelimit 0 -IncludedProperties msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled,msRTCSIP-UserEnabled | Where {$_.'msRTCSIP-UserEnabled' -eq $true } | WHERE {$_.'msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled' -ne $true } |select name, msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled |

What I'm having trouble with is using this command to set the followiong value to true.
msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled

Any help would be appreciated.

You will need to use the set-qaduser cmdlet for this. Take the code that Dale has posted but just change this

Foreach ($User in $Users){
Write-Host "Setting $($User.samaccountname) to Federation Enabled = True"
Set-qaduser $user -objectattributes @{msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled=$True}
}


or from your original post you can add this

Get-QADUser –Sizelimit 0 -IncludedProperties msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled,msRTCSIP-UserEnabled | Where {$_.'msRTCSIP-UserEnabled' -eq $true} | Where {$_.'msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled' -ne $true } | Set-qaduser -ObjectAttributes @{msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled = $True}

Another option would be to use a LDAP filter.

get-qaduser -LDAPFILTER "(&(msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled=True)(msRTCSIP-UserEnabled=True))" | Set-qaduser -ObjectAttributes @{msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled=$True}



Like Dale I am unable to test these since I do not have Office communicator.

I would step it out to see if it's a null value, true/false, or empty string.

$User = Get-QADUser "TestUser" -includedproperties msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled

$User.msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled

$User.msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled = $True

Does that work?

If so, try this:
Get-QADUser –Sizelimit 0 -IncludedProperties msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled,msRTCSIP-UserEnabled | Where {$_.'msRTCSIP-UserEnabled' -eq $true } | WHERE {$_.'msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled' -ne $true } | %{$_.msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled = $True}

You can also make it a tiny bit easier for you to understand if you take away the last part in a pipeline and use an actual Foreach command like this:

$Users = Get-QADUser –Sizelimit 0 -IncludedProperties msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled,msRTCSIP-UserEnabled | ? {($_.'msRTCSIP-UserEnabled' -eq $true) -and ($_.'msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled' -ne $true) }

Foreach ($User in $Users){
Write-Host "Setting $($User.samaccountname) to Federation Enabled = True"
$User.msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled = $True
}


Haven't tested this code, just shooting from the hip, but I think that should get you where you need to be.  Please don't just copy and paste it and say "It doesn't work" without trying to see where the error might be (could be a typo).  I've never worked with Officer Communicator but have worked with AD for a long time.

HTH,

And does it matter if every single user is supposed to take this command, you could just set all users to enabled/true.

Would that work better?  Or do you need to avoid people that don't have UserEnabled = True?

Just a thought.

No I can't set all accounts, it has to be just the ones that are msRTCSIP-UserEnabled.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I am not at work so I can't test the solution.
I will try when I get back in the morning.

I'll play with it a little more then.

Okay, then the other solution provided should work for you.  Looking forward to a response.

Ahh it's not a native property of AD, so it makes sense it would have to be changed through objectattributes.

Good catch, Ken.

This solution works as needed.
I only had to make one minor change and enclose the field in quotes.

 @{'msRTCSIP-FederationEnabled' = $True}

Thanks for the help!

Would it be too much to ask for a point split between myself and Ken?  I think Ken would agree.

At second glance, I see that you really only needed that one bit of code that Ken provided since you had everything else.  Disregard the last comment I made.
