I have two domain forests.  Let's call the 1st mydomain.com and 2nd is otherdomain.com.

I have a script that creates new user accounts, including the SamID from an input file called newusers.csv.  There's already a query to check for duplicate SamID's in mydomain.com, if a match is found the script exits with an a message of 'Duplicate SamID' found'.

I need a script to query for duplicate SamID's in otherdomain.com.  There is a two-way trust between the forests.

I believe I've answered my own question with the following:

for /f "skip=1 tokens=1,5 delims=," %%a in (%APPDIR%\CreateACcounts.csv) do dsquery user -domain otherdomain.com -samid %%b >>%APPDIR%\UserObjects.txt
