(Get-QADUser yew357).MemberOf | % { if  ($_ -like "*fsr-prs*"){write-host "pass!" } }

Open in new window


Based on the output from get-qaduser we run a like match against it.

(Get-QADUser yew357).MemberOf | % { if ($_  -like "*fsr-prs*"){echo "$_" } }

 cn=dl-fsr-prs-eaf-pol....,ou=....., ,ou=...
 cn=dl-fsr-prs-eaf-df....,ou=....., ,ou=...
 cn=dl-fsr-prs-eaf-ois....,ou=....., ,ou=...

the only bit i need fsr-prs-eaf and i need this in a variable. then i need to add this to antother variable with the text \\wm.ws.qre.ac.uk

and i want this to equal to  \\wm.ws.qre.ac.uk\fsr-prs-eaf\users\yew357

This will write all groups that contain the string "frs-prs" that User1 is a member of.

get-qaduser User1| Get-QADMemberOf | ForEach-Object {if ($_.name.contains("frs-prs") -eq $true) {write-host $_.name }}

So I do not have a test, but you can probably  do the above or make a split.

(Get-QADUser yew357).MemberOf | % { if  ($_ -like "*fsr-prs*"){$gval = $_.split(",") -replace "cn=","";write-host "pass!" } }

after this completes when i do a $gval[0] on powershell i get:

DL-FSR-PRS-EST-R

the only test i need is the prs-est

how do i split this again,

i then need to convert prs-est to prs\est and add \\wm.qw.ac.uk\fac & usr at the end, which would the equal to \\wm.qw.ac.uk\fac\prs\est\usr

i've got this far:

(Get-QADUser yew357).MemberOf | % { if  ($_ -like "*fsr-prs*"){$gval = $_.split(",") -replace "cn=","" }

$s=$gval[0].split("-")[1..3]

}

Sorry you need to simply add join.
 $s  = ($s.split("-")[1..3] -join"-") -replace "-", "\"
