Powershell script to list AD users

I need a Powershell script to list all users in AD with their OU location and basic account info. Currently I only need to know if the password is set to never expire but you can add other useful columns. The output shout go to txt or csv file. Thanks!

Is this Windows 2008R2 (or later)? If so, we can use the ActiveDirectory module and its Get-AD* cmdlets. If not, I recommend to get Quest ActiveRoles (free), and use their Get-QAD* cmdlets.

It is 2008R2. I don't know much about PS so I need the exact script...

Worried about phishing attacks?

90% of attacks start with a phish. It’s critical that IT admins and MSSPs have the right security in place to protect their end users from these phishing attacks. Check out our latest feature brief for tips and tricks to keep your employees off a hackers line!

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties *

Open in new window

will list all info for all AD objects (groups and users). To get a specific property, like the Password Never Expires setting, put that instead of the * after -Properties:
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties PasswordNeverExpires | Select Name, Pass*

Open in new window

It is always a good idea to ask PS for help:
  Get-Help Get-ADUser -detailed
or
 Get-Help Get-AD*
and to get the available properties
 Get-ADUser ExistingADUserHere -Properties *| get-member
(replace the user name, of course).

What do I need to do to have a column that shows an OU where the user is located?

I think you can get it by doing this on PowerShell V3 (might work on PowerShell v3):

Get-ADUser -Identity lastnameFirstInitial -Properties DistinguishedName

To get all the properties of a user:

Get-ADUser -Identity lastnameFirstInitial -Properties *

where lastnameFirstInitial is the username the user uses to log on to the Network.

If you are running Windows 2008 R2, you will need to import the AD  module by running:

import-module servermanager

Add-WindowsFeature -Name "RSAT-AD-PowerShell" -IncludeAllSubFeature



Thanks.

The OU is not available directly, only as part of the complete path.
CanonicalName is something like domain.com/TestOU/SubOU/UserName
DistinguishedName is then CN=UserName,OU=SubOU,OU=TestOU,DC=domain,dc=com
I will use CanonicalName, and add that to the command I showed already:
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties PasswordNeverExpires, CanonicalName | Select Name, Pass*, @{n='OU'; e={($_.CanonicalName -split '/')[-2]}}
