do you want a list? as you can use powershell to do this easily

get-aduser -filter *

then use >users.csv to push it out to a file

if you want to get this a little less info then you can filter the output
if you can be more specific with what you want to see i can give you the syntax

or net user /domain

net user /domain >users.txt

I wrote following C# code to enumerate all the employess and it is working fine. Now i want to filter the users by OU name.  Is there a way by which i can filter by OU.

 using (var context = new PrincipalContext(ContextType.Domain, "mydomainname.net"))
            {
                using (var searcher = new PrincipalSearcher(new UserPrincipal(context)))
                {
                    foreach (var result in searcher.FindAll())
                    {
                        DirectoryEntry de = result.GetUnderlyingObject() as DirectoryEntry;
                        Console.WriteLine("First Name: " + de.Properties["givenName"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine("Last Name : " + de.Properties["sn"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine("SAM account name   : " + de.Properties["samAccountName"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine("User principal name: " + de.Properties["userPrincipalName"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine();
                    }
                }
            }
            Console.ReadLine();

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

yes you should be able to call the filter similar to the powershell filter

$objDomain = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry
$objOU = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry("LDAP://dc=your,dc=domain")

$objSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$objSearcher.SearchRoot = $objOU

You can also use the following LDAP Query

(&(objetecategory=person)(objectclass=user))

You can do that in ADUC or use command line methods like adfind, csvde, powershell, etc.

Thanks
