I was trying to see if there was a way I can take a fixed amount of OU's and run a command against them. I wanted to use an array (newbie here) but not sure how to represent each ou inside of this and run some commands inside of the foreach command. Any help would be appreciated, thanks


$OU=@(OU=USERS,OU=HR,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM, OU=USERS,OU=FINANCE,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM,OU=USERS,OU=SALES,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM,OU=USERS,OU=IT,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM)

$names=get-qaduser
foreach ($ou in $ousers)
{

$names -searchroot  $_ | set qaduser -passwordneverexpire $true

}

You can represent OU's like this...

@(
"OU=USERS,OU=HR,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
"OU=USERS,OU=FINANCE,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
"OU=USERS,OU=SALES,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
"OU=USERS,OU=IT,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
)

Open in new window


If you can explain what you trying to achieve, then it will be better.. the code you posted is incorrect and confusing.. :-)

If you are trying to set the passwordneverexpire to $true for all users the the given OU's then you can try..
@(
"OU=USERS,OU=HR,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
"OU=USERS,OU=FINANCE,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
"OU=USERS,OU=SALES,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
"OU=USERS,OU=IT,DC=SOMECOMPANY,DC=COM"
) | % {

Get-QADUser -searchroot $_ | Set-QADUser -passwordneverexpire $true

}
