I need a way to list all the users of a given manager. It can be a native powershell or using QAD tools.

Here is what I tried?

$Mgr = Get-Qaduser MyManager
get-qaduser | where {$_.Manager -eq $Mgr}

But that did not return any results.

Try..

Get-User -ResultSize unlimited | where {$_.manager -match "name"}

Open in new window

I would not use that filter
"Get-User -ResultSize unlimited | where {$_.manager -match "name"}"

What this is doing is pulling every single user in your AD and then piping to the where. If you have a large AD env this will take awhile


Use this

Get-Qaduser -manager USERNAMEOFMANAGER

ANd to add to your original. It was not working becuase it is looking for a DN

SO this would work but very inefficient



$Mgr = (Get-Qaduser MyManager).DN
get-qaduser | where {$_.Manager -eq $Mgr}
