I have a CSV or Text file containing usernames. I need to use it in a PS script to see if they are already enabled in Lync Server.

Thank you,

using the Lync management shell type this command:
get-csuser | Select-Object DisplayName, SAMAccountname, SIPAddress >e:\user.csv
user file will be filled with the lync enabled user.
Also you can check below command

Actually, what I'm looking for is to take a list of users from a text or CSV and use it as a filter to see if they are enabled in Lync.  Your script simply shows how to export a list of users into a CSV file.

How can I use filter below to find users in a text file to see if they are enabled on Lync or not?

Get-CsAdUser –Filter {CsEnabled –eq $False}

The above command will list to you all enable users if you want to run command from Lync Server.
To filter which is enable or not. That based on AD by checking sip address who have sip address is enable.
Also you can run below script

So if you are trying to verify the user accounts from a list then the following code will help you..
Import-Module lync
GC C:\user.txt | %{
Try{Get-CsUser $_ -ea stop | Out-Null;$Status = "Enabled"}Catch{$Status = "Disabled"}
$_ | Select @{N="User";E={$_}},@{N="Lync";E={$Status}}
} 

Open in new window

C:\user.txt Input file should be like.
UserA
UserB
UserC

Open in new window

You can also use Export-csv to export the result to a csv file..
