I am trying to export some data from AD using powershell. Need the following information:

Firstname, lastname, email, phone, company, url

I can pull all the data above except for the URL field. It displays on screen, but doesn't export. I have:

get-aduser -Properties givenname,surname,enabled,emailaddress,office,officephone,url | export-csv test.csv

Clarifying... URL is Web Page Other, and not the same as wwwhomepage. When you display on screen the URL field, it displays, but for some reason it won't export to csv. I assume because you can have multiple URL fields?

Use Quest AD Module and run:

>Get-QADUser -objectAttributes @[www}

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Govvy, that still doesn't export the URL field.

yeah, that is a multi valued attribute. It is a little harder to get them into a csv file. Do users have more than 1 url attribute? I can post something later tonight if no one posts before that

KenMcF: For most, there is only 1 url attribute. Very few have 2 url attributes.

Change the output to csv type on this command:

>Get-QADUser -DontUseDefaultIncludedProperties -ObjectAttributes @{homeDirectory='*'} -IncludedProperties 'url' | fl url
