I personally like Quests Active Directory tools

Here is a script using QAD

Get-Content 'ImportPath' | ForEach-Object
	{
	Select-Object Name, SamAccountName, ExtensionAttribute9 | Export-Csv 'ExportPath'
	}

Open in new window

Hi Ahomsfere,

Is there a get-qaduser missing in there?

i dont think the script is working, there is no variable declared..

Try this

$Users = get-content c:\temp\emailaddresses.txt
$Users | foreach {
    Get-QADUser -Email $Mail
} | Select samaccountname, mail | Export-Csv c:\temp\mailtest.csv -NoTypeInformation

had a typo


$Users = get-content c:\temp\emailaddresses.txt
$Users | foreach {
    Get-QADUser -Email $_
} | Select samaccountname, mail | Export-Csv c:\temp\mailtest.csv -NoTypeInformation

Sorry, yes I forgot to include the variable / user:

Get-Content 'ImportPath' | ForEach-Object
	{
         Get-QADUser -Email $_ | `
	Select-Object Name, SamAccountName, ExtensionAttribute9 | Export-Csv 'ExportPath'
	}

Open in new window

@athomsfere

your CSV file will be overwritten with every user, so you will only get the results for the last user in the CSV file.

well, actually, that is what i try to avoid, I need the csv file to include all user's selected attributes.

Thanks

Look at what I had posted before, I think this will get you what you want. Just change the input file and export file location



$Users = get-content c:\temp\emailaddresses.txt
$Users | foreach {
    Get-QADUser -Email $_
} | Select samaccountname, mail | Export-Csv c:\temp\mailtest.csv -NoTypeInformation
