Generate a list of AD Users

I need a powershell script written that will produce a list of AD users and if they have a connect drive present in the user's profile tab

I would like the list to be written to an excel spreadsheet

Do you need to sort by container? Or for the entire domain?

Are you using native powershell or quest cmdlets?

I tested using the free adfind   http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)(homedirectory=*)" samaccountname homedirectory -csv >  Users.csv

That will give you users that have the homedirectory populated.



A real simple one would also be:

Get-QADUser * | Select-Object Name, HomeDirectory | Export-Csv "C:\Users\aufrench\Desktop\ADDUMP.CSV"

Open in new window

Assuming you use Quest's tools. However, depending on how large your domain is this might be a bad approach. A few hundred users  is no problem, but 10s of thousands and this might not work well on your PC.

I do not have Quest's tools.  What do I need to do for this?

Love these cmdlets myself. Download them here... Quest PoSh cmdlets
