GETADUSER

Hi,

I need to run the below script for an application vendor.  Can someone explain what the following command does?  I know the script will harvest information such as email address, title and so on in active directory but I would like to understand the detail.

Our users in AD are mostly in the USER container and there are some other groups scattered in other OUs.  Should I run the below in ourdomain.com?  If yes, do I need to specify or it will run from ourdomain.com by default?

Please advise.  Many thanks.

Get-ADUser –LDAPFilter "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2) (mail=*))" -Properties OfficePhone,EmailAddress,Title,Office,Department,Description,Manager | Set-Custodian -Company <company>

This will pull OfficePhone,EmailAddress,Title,Office,Department,Description,Manager from active directory users (person) whose account is not disabled and have anything in the mail attribute.

It will pull from the entire directory, I don't see any OU filters on this
I don't know what the Set-Custodian cmdlet does as it isn't a standard powershell command, might be proprietary to the software you are working with the vendor on.

!userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2 Means No disabled users.
mail=* Means the mail attribute is not NULL
