I have a pshell script that creates users based on the <NewQAD-User> method my problem is I have a csv file with a column name of "Logon Usrename" that has all the SAMAccounts and I would like the script to see if the `New Logon Names` exist in AD and then display if they are or not...
I have done some research and have managed to find something similar on the`Net' , however I need a little help as I dont know how to reference my "Logon Username" column in this script.
Please if you can assist me in this I would greatly appreciate it allot

<# Imran Pathan > Find if the user exist in AD #> 
    
$UserList=IMPORT-CSV C:\FINAL_SCRIPTS\findUsers.csv 
$DC = 'PDC002.mydomain.local' 
Connect-QADService -service $DC 
Function FindDomainUser 
{ 
    Param( 
        [string] $_SamAccountName 
        ) 
    #-------------------- Find user --------------------------# 
    if(Get-QADUser -SamAccountName $_SamAccountName) 
     { 
         Write-Host "User Exist - $_SamAccountName" 
     } 
     else 
     { 
         Write-Host "User Don't Exist - $_SamAccountName"  
     } 
} 
#------------------ Find user End --------------------------# 
FOREACH ($Person in $UserList) { 
    FindDomainUser $Person.SamAccountName 
}

For properties which contain a space just encapsulate them in brackets.
FOREACH ($Person in $UserList) { 
    FindDomainUser $Person."Logon Username" 
}

Will try this during today that <learnctx> one more thing I would be greatly happy with is perhaps have a script like this that checks to see if the userlogon name exist and then if it does make it <userlogon name> +<1> and then once all the new users have been created display it either on the screen or <pipe> it to a txt file?

I don't have the quest cmdlets, but using the AD cmdlets you could just implement a simple counter.

$Counter=$null
$ContinueScript=$true
$user="username"
While ($ContinueScript)
{
	$newuser="$($user)$($counter)"
	try {$x=Get-ADUser -Identity $newuser -ErrorAction Stop; "$newuser exists already";$counter++}catch{$ContinueScript=$false}
}
$newuser
## go on to create the user with new-qaduser or whatever the command is.

Open in new window


Something like the above. It will check for example jsmith. It will find jsmith and then the counter will increment by 1. It will keep searching for a new unique user name by incrementing the counter by 1 until say jsmith5 doesn't exist. It will then set $ContinueScript=$false and break out of the while loop.

Hi Buddy and thank you again for you assistance as much appreciated..just so that we are on the same page here though...<does this script run and then if it find that the username is already in use will it prompt you to type in a new username then and then create the `new username' after you type it in? Also I have custom attributes like tel number, address etc...will this still be amended to the new user name?
