Active Directory Query

I need to run a query in Active Directory that will retrieve user's first name, last name and their account login name and export it to a csv file.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would use powershell and the free Quest cmdlets

get-qaduser -sl 0 | Select FirstNAme, LastName, Samaccountname | Export-csv c:\temp\users.csv -notype

Lots of great ways

I like adfind (free)

adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)" givenname sn samaccountname -csv -nodn > c:\users.csv

adinfo is a really nice free GUI tool

other methods include powershell, dstools, vbscript, csvde, and there are more.

I'm a ldifde and csvde man myself, both are tools from Microsoft and available in the Windows resource kit

ldifde -f Exportuser.ldf -d "dc=Export,dc=com" -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=User)(givenname=*))" -l "cn, sAMAccountName"

ldifde -f Exportuser.ldf -d "dc=Export,dc=com" -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=User)(givenname=*))" -l "givenName, sn, sAMAccountName"

CSVDE -f export3.csv -l "cn, samAccountName"
CSVDE -f export3.csv -l "givenName, sn, samAccountName"
