Can someone please help. I need to find all disabled user accounts and move them to a specified OU called "Ex Employees" using Powershell.

It would be great if the domain name and OU had a variable so I can use this in multiple environments easily.

THanks!

This is very simple using the quest cmdlets.

Get-qaduser -disabled | move-qadobject -NewParentContainer {distinguished name of EX employees ou}

Xxdcmast,

I would prefer to use the builtin AD cmdlets, if possible.

Thanks!

Following powershell command Works on Server 2008 R2 domain controllers..
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter {(useraccountcontrol:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)} | Move-ADObject -targetpath 'OU=Ex Employees,DC=Domain,DC=Com'

Open in new window


Edit : Add -SearchBase if you want to search based on OU's..
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter {(useraccountcontrol:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)} -SearchBase "OU=Emp,DC=Domain,DC=Com" | Move-ADObject -targetpath 'OU=Ex Employees,DC=Domain,DC=Com'
