powershell script help - filter get-distributiongroup

I need to bulk modify around 75 distribution groups.. on many we have the flags attribute set with a 1.  I'd like to get-distributiongroup with a filter pulling all the DL's with that flags=1, then Set them all with a modification to the Notes: field adding the words 'no sync'.

My hangup so far is filtering based on that specific attribute and what type of array to load them into.

this will get all groups with attribute Flags equal 1 and add info (Notes) with no sync

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$groups = get-Adgroup -Filter * | ? {$_.Flags -eq "1"}
foreach ($group in $groups)
{
Set-ADGroup $group.SamAccountName -Add @{info = "no sync"}
}

Open in new window

Running the get-adgroup line alone to judge the results.. I get nothing returned.

get-Adgroup -Filter * | ? {$_.Flags -eq "1"}

Open in new window


Should I specify the OU to run against?
