Give this a try using powershell

get-aduser -filter 'enabled -eq $true' | format-table givenanme, surname, samaccountname -autosize

Open in new window


Thanks

The term 'get-aduser' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the
spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:11
+ get-aduser <<<<  -filter 'enabled -eq $true' | format-table givenanme, surname, samaccountname -autosize
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (get-aduser:String) [], CommandNotFoundException

Make sure you have the AD tools/RSAT installed more on that here  

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rkramesh/archive/2012/01/17/how-to-add-active-directory-module-in-powershell-in-windows-7.aspx

then

import-module activedirectory

if you type get-host what version are you running?

Newer versions will import the module for you.  Powershell 2 wasn't that smart.

Thanks

When you are in your powershell session run get-module. You should then see active directory listed if the module has installed correctly. If it is installed then run get-command this will give you a list of all available commands that are present in your session. You should then see get-aduser.

If you have the Active Directory modules, you can try Get-ADUser with the -LDAPFilter clause. You don't need the clauses to restrict the query to users. For example:

Get-ADUser -SearchBase "ou=West,dc=MyDomain,dc=com" -LDAPFilter "(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2)"


Or, you can try dsquery * at the command prompt of a DC with the same LDAP query. For example:

dsquery * "ou=West,dc=MyDomain,dc=com" -Filter "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))"

To use this field in a filter you can use LDAP_MATCHING_RULE_IN_CHAIN OID, as discribed in Microsoft article Search Filter Syntax.

Check this article about Filtering for Bit Fields for details on how this work and you could use this tool for this
