Hello Everyone,

My PowerShell Skills are near non-existant.

I'm looking for a powershell script that will list all the users in my AD. All I need is a Firstname, Lastname and SamAccountName please?

Any help would be awesome thanks.

Thanks guys.

I'm getting errors using this script. I don't want to import any users.
All I'm looking for is a csv file with FirstName, LastName and SamAccount info.
What's the command that I must use?
Apology if I'm an ID10t.
:-)

Use the following syntax below...

import-module activedirectory
Get-aduser -filter * - properties * | select GivenName, Surname, sAMaccountName | export-csv -noTypeInformation "c:\users.csv"

Open in new window

If you dont mind installing the FREE Quest cmdlets from here this could be as simple as

# For all properties
Get-QADUser -sl 0 -IncludeAllProperties -SerializeValues | export-csv <file> -noType

# For just the properties in your script
Get-QADUser -sl 0 -IncludeAllProperties -SerializeValues | select DisplayName,mailnickName,city | export-csv <file> -noType
