Hello all,
I would like to count the total of users in specific OU in AD. I found some command online or script but it did not work.

Get-ADUser -Filter * -SearchBase "ou=Accounting,ou=administration,ou=people,dc=ncmecad,dc=net"

Please give me some hints.
Thanks,

If you just want to count the number of users in a OU you can use this:

(Get-ADUser -Filter * -SearchBase "ou=Accounting,ou=administration,ou=people,dc=ncmecad,dc=net").count

The command from spravtek is used to have total count of users in the specific OU.
The script from the article is used to have total count of users in each OU in organization
Thanks for your help.
