Hey guys,

For the life of me, i cannot figure out how to whip up a command that will list all AD users with the word TERMED in the description.  

FYI have have the scriptlogic's powershell extensions installed also.

Any advice?

Get-ADUser -Filter 'description -like "*termed*"' -properties *| FT samaccountname, description
