Hello,

I have this script below that works great for users in one domain.  But I like to use the script to update users in another domain.  How can I use this script to ensure users are being updating for a particular domain?


`Import-Module ActiveDirectory            
$users = import-csv -path d:\scripts\hiredatepls.csv
foreach($user in $users)
{    
$fielduser = $user.SamAccountName
$fielddate = $user.HireDate -as [datetime]
echo "$fielduser,$fielddate"
Set-ADUser $fielduser  -Replace @{HireDate = $fielddate}
}

did you update the schema using adsiedit to reflect the hiredate property?  HireDate is not in the schema normally

Yes, hiredate is a property for each profile.  

Do I need to specify DC=domain DC=com?  Or, will the script find the username in other domains?
