I need to get the list of AD users in my domain with a criteria. If the custom attribute 1 and 5 are equal i should get the total number of users count.

get-user -Resultsize unlimited -organizationalunit -filter {((customAttribute6 -like '76*') -and (customAttribute6 -like 'Vehicle*'))}| Measure-Object).Count

When executing the count i am getting the below error:

The term 'customAttribute6' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function
, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a pat
h was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1
+ get-user -resultsize unlimited -OrganizationalUnit -Filter
(customAttribute6 <<<<  -like '76*')
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (customAttribute1:String) [], Co
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

Is there a way i can use custom attribute to retrieve AD users list.

Please help me in executing the cmd.

Thanks in Advance.
