Try running just this:
$name = $samaccount
Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "(sAMAccountName=$Name)"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes I want to be sure the filter actually works, if the command is successful then the filter works and it might be something else in the  command

Both of the below work for me:
(of course in one forest and not another as I do not have that property in one)

Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "(sAMAccountName=$Name)" -Properties extensionAttribute12 | Select-Object -ExpandProperty extensionAttribute12 | Export-CSV -path c:\ext12attr.csv 

Open in new window


(Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "(sAMAccountName=$Name)" -Properties extensionAttribute12).extensionAttribute12

Open in new window

I'm pretty certain you don't want just to dump the content of that attribute. Instead you are interested in the user data, and so at least need the samAccountName. And, btw, you either need to provide a specific user ID, or a filter with Get-ADUser:
get-aduser -Filter * -properties extensionAttribute12 |
   ? { $_.samaccountname } |
   select samAccountName, extensionAttribute12 |
   export-csv c:\CustomAttr12.csv

Open in new window

Qlemo are you saying that my command will dump the content of that attribute for all users  ?

Not for all users, but for users with that attribute set. And no info about the user itself.
