I need to get a report of active, meaning not disabled, user accounts and if they have a corresponding attribute called EmployeeID, I've been using the following powershell command, however it does not return a value for employeeID, which when I browse ADSIedit, it is listed as an attribute, some with values and some blank.  What am I missing here?

Get-ADUser -LdapFilter "(&(!useraccountcontrol:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))" | Select-Object Name,UserPrincipalName,employeeID | Sort-Object UserPrincipalName > C:\export.txt

Try

Get-ADUser -Filter 'enabled -eq $true' -properties * |select-object name, userprincipalname, employeeid

Thanks

Is there any way to exclude a particular OU from this report?  Specifically the following OU and child OUs beneith it:  COMPANY.COM\Service Accounts

The Service Accounts OU contains 4 OUs beneath it called: Admin, Service, Test, Other

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try this

Get-ADUser -Filter 'enabled -eq $true' -properties * |where-object {$_.DistinguishedName      -notlike "*OU=service accounts,DC=company,DC=com*"} | select-object name, userprincipalname, employeeid

I think Mcknife the link that i gave on the option

" Use the PowerShell AD Provider to Modify User Attributes " is the same that describe Get " Active Directory User with Specific Attribute ". If I'm wrong please explain where, so that it would be a learning for me itself.
