Active Directory PS script to modify attributes from CSV file

Hello PS - Experts,

I need help with a seemingly simple Powershell script.

I have a CSV looking like this:
Name,Uid,Gid
jsmith,123456,78910
user2,123457,78910

Open in new window


The script should read the values and select an AD object by logon name and modifying this object's attributes GIDnumber and UIDnumber values with the ones from the CSV.

Thanks in advance!

What attributes are you looking to change in Active Directory referencing GIDNumber and UIDNumber? Do you want these numbers in the extensionAttribute section for Users Accounts?

Below is the structure of how you can do this. I will still need to know what values you want to modify in AD using the GID/UID columns in your CSV file.

Import-module activedirectory
$ModUsers = import-csv "c:\yourCSVfile.csv"
foreach ($User in $ModUsers) {
$User.Name
$User.Uid
$User.Gid
Set-ADUser -Identity $User.Name -extensionAttribute1 $$User.Uid -extensionAttribute2 $User.Gid
}

Open in new window

Here's what I was thinking...
Import-Csv file.csv | ForEach `
{
    $uid = $_.UID
    $gid = $_.GID
    Get-ADUser $_.name | Set-ADUser -replace @{gidnumber=$gid;uidnumber=$uid}
}
