PowerShell Script to modify session attributes in user objects

I have a script I have written to modify the '-TsMaxDisconnectionTime' to 15 minutes against a list of users in a csv file. the script runs without any incidents or errors. At the end of my time line and no longer have the time to research... any help would be greatly appreciated...

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

$users = import-csv C:\temp\gisuserscfw.csv | ForEach-Object {Get-QADUser -SamAccountName $_.SamAccountName}
{
Set-QADUser -Identity $User -TsMaxDisconnectionTime "00:15"
}

Sorry... it runs with no errors but dosent make the change... when I run it per user it correctly changes the attribute to 15 minutes... it has something to do with the way I am calling the csv file...

This will work. You just have to make sure your CSV file has a Column Header named SamAccountName

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement
$Users = Import-Csv C:\temp\gisuserscfw.csv | ForEach-Object { Set-QADUser -Identity $_.SamAccountName -TsMaxDisconnectionTime '00:15:00' }

I do have the header named 'SamAccountName' here is the error it returns... I also insured that I do have the actual username aka SamAccountName in the csv file.

Give this a shot. I would make sure that your csv file is a true CSV. Open with Notepad and make sure it is comma separated and not tab separated or any other

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement
Import-Csv C:\users.csv | % {
$user = $_.SamAccountName
Set-QADUser $user -TsMaxDisconnectionTime "00:15"}

Same result... I even created a new export of the list to ensure the comma separated value was correct. I ran the code against both and both I get the same result...

I wonder if I should save it as a script and run in it with in the ISE?

The script you are trying to run uses Quest commandlets, do you have those installed on your PC?
