Getting info from AD with powershell

How would I get First, Last Name, Telephone and only from specific OUs and outputting to a CSV or TXT File.. using powershell. Not sure if it can be done alphabetically but that would be a plus.

You can use Quest AD Management snapin.

Download from
.Net 3 is requirement.
If you are using windows server 2012
use Add-WindowsFeature net-framework-core -Source D:\sources\sxs
where D:\sources\sxs is the path of windows 2012 dvd.

Next, Install Quest Management.
After installation is complete, run Add-PSSnapin quest.activeroles.admanagement

Finally your required 1 liner.
Get-QADUser -SearchRoot "OU=vhlusers,DC=vhl,DC=com" -IncludeAllProperties | select FirstName, LastName, PhoneNumber

this will display the result in powershell, to export it to csv you can pipe it to export-csv cmdlet.

Get-QADUser -SearchRoot "OU=vhlusers,DC=vhl,DC=com" -IncludeAllProperties | select FirstName, LastName, PhoneNumber | Export-Csv -Path c:\userdetails.csv -noTypeInformation
