Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADUser $_ -properties DisplayName,HomeDirectory | Select DisplayName,HomeDirectory | where {$_.homedirectory -eq $null or $_.homedirectory -eq ""}  | Export-CSV c:\file.csv -nti

Open in new window

                                         
Something like above should work.

You need to use -SearchBase parameter to search in specific OU. In below example C:\homedirectory.csv will have details of users who are missing homedirectory attribute from OU "OU=Personnel,DC=Domain,DC=COM"
Import-Module Activedirectory
Get-ADUser -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Personnel,DC=Domain,DC=COM" | ?{!($_.homedirectory)} | Export-csv C:\homedirectory.csv -nti

Open in new window

Open in new window

For mine you'd just change or to "-or".
