PowerShell Set-ADUser

Hi

I am trying to set up the command to Set-ADUser via the users employeeID and to add a comment in to the extensionAttribute.  I am hoping someone can help I looked at the MS site but I think I am missing something here.

Set-ADUser -EmployeeID "12345" -extensionAttribute12 "1235"

Try this:
Set-Mailbox -Identity "12345" -ExtensionCustomAttribute12 @{Add="12345"}

you need to use Set-QADUser instead.

Try this:
set-aduser -identity "12345" -add @{extensionAttribute12='1235' }

Set-Mailbox -Identity "12345" -ExtensionCustomAttribute12 @{Add="12345"}

the Identity in the command line is username not employeeID as I want to use that as the lookup for the user.

that did not work??

First try the Get-ADUser with filter, without the pipeline. That shows whether there is an object found:
Get-ADUser -Filter {EmployeeID -eq '12345'}

Open in new window

Does that return an user?

Get-ADUser -Filter {EmployeeID -eq '12345'}  works after I add the Pipe it does nothing
