Hello

I have a list of about twenty Active Directory GUIDs that I need to convert to something more user friendly, (e.g. AD username UPN, DisplayName).

I have the list of GUID's in a csv file named GUID.csv

Does anyone know of a Powershell (we have Quest) or similar that we can run to get this info?

There is a shortcut in adfind that can help

adfind -sc adguid:57572....

Would need to wrap around a batch to read from the csv


Thanks

This line returns you a list of SID, Domain and Name of accounts that are found by GUID

Get-Content test.txt | Foreach-Object {Get-WMIObject Win32_Account -Filter "sid='$_'" | Select-Object SID,Domain,Name}

Note: This line do not returns any information about guid not found...

Thanks all

We actually do have Quest Powershell which should help.

If I look at an account, the objectGUID value is what we have in GUID.txt

How can I convert this to DisplayName?

So, I have:

i. objectGUID for a list of users and I want to know DisplayName

I guess the PS query is saying:

get-QADuser where objectGUID=*first value in csv* and return me the DisplayName value
