Powershell help

Looking for a short script to do the following:

Search AD object for the following attributes: info which would be set to 'no sync' and flags set to '1'.  If found null both values and possible report back the accounts found with either of those two attributes set.

Just use an LDAP filter when you're requesting it the users.
(&(objectClass=user)(objectCategory=person)(info=no sync)(flags=1))

I assume you've extended the schema since neither info or flags exist in the schema by default. If you have not extended the schema you're going to have to explain which attributes you're looking for.

Ok so yeah. I'm missing something here.  Those two attributes exist under Advanced Features but that query returns nothing.

Try this.
get-adobject -filter {info -eq "no sync" -and flags -eq "1"}

Open in new window

It's a little odd, according to this link which shows all AD attributes, flags is on the list, but not info.

I have "info" in my AD as well when I look at an object and I haven't extended my schema except for the installation of Exchange.

Same here.. Exchange 2010 would have been the last schema change that I know of.

What I am trying to do is remove all attribute data that's currently blocking an unknown amount of objects from syncing via FIM.  Our parent company set all the FIM (PCNS) stuff up and we could use either flags = 1 or info = no sync to block syncing.

You would probably want to limit your search to specific OUs using the -searchbase parameter of Get-ADObject.  Examine the returned results to verify that there aren't some objects which should be excluded.  I know in my environment, I have some Group Policy objects that have flags set to 1.  Couldn't tell you what it means though.
Get-ADObject -filter {info -eq "no sync" -or flags -eq "1"} | Set-ADObject -Clear info,flags -WhatIf
