Export All AD user Remote Desktop Services Home Directory Path

Hi All,

I have been searching over the net for ages and cannot seem to find what i need.

I have in the process of migrating a file server, i have a large number of users who have their home drives configured under the AD Profiles tab and the "Remote Desktop Services" TAB. I have and can easily retrieve all users in my domain attributes for their Profiles Tab home directory path, but cannot do the same for the "Remote Desktop Services Profile " tab. I have seen articles for ldap searches but these do not really do what i want.

All i really need to do is export any user who has a path configured in AD under the "Remote Desktop Services" tab for their home directory.

Ideally using powershell.

I hope to get username, remotedesktop services home directory path (From Remote Desktop Services Profile TAB in AD)

(All DC 2008r2)
Thanks in Advance!

.SYNOPSIS
Returns the Home Directory and Remote Desktop Services Home Folder for every user

.DESCRIPTION
This script filled a need to show who's home folder lives where, and if they have a matching (or existing) RDP home folder prior to F/P server migrations. 
Queries AD for all users with a homeDirectory that is not null, checks to see if they have an RDP Home directory, and outputs it all in a nice csv file.

I got this from Spiceworks forum (http://community.spiceworks.com/scripts/show/1946-get-home-and-rdp-home-directories) and it has worked for us.
