Looking for a way to parse a string that contains multiple Distinguished Names to put the names into a separate array.
Example.

$String = "CN=John S. Smith*a,OU=Users,OU=Tier 8,OU=Admins,DC=fg,DC=ef,DC=na,DC=ORG CN=Joe D. Smith*a,OU=Users,OU=Tier 2,OU=Admins,DC=fd,DC=hd,DC=tv,DC=ORG"

to

$NewString ="CN=John S. Smith*a,OU=Users,OU=Tier 8,OU=Admins,DC=fg,DC=ef,DC=na,DC=ORG"
"CN=Joe D. Smith*a,OU=Users,OU=Tier 2,OU=Admins,DC=fd,DC=hd,DC=tv,DC=ORG"

Try this.
$NewString = $String -split "CN=" | ? {$_} | % {"CN=$($_.trim())"}
