I'm struggling to write a Powershell command that will list all of the mailboxes in an OU, but leave out the mailboxes in sub-OU's.

I've tried:

get-mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=Disabled Accounts,DC=domain,DC=com" | where {$_.distinguishedName -like "CN=*,OU=Disabled*"} | select-object name

Open in new window


get-mailbox -filter distinguishedName -like "CN=*,OU=Disabled Accounts,DC=domain,DC=COM"

Open in new window


get-mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=Disabled Accounts,DC=Leavitt,DC=COM" -filter "distinguishedName -like 'CN=*,OU=Disabled Accounts,DC=domain,DC=COM'"

Open in new window


I'm just not getting this right.  Can someone help?

Thanks,

Dan

First get the canonical name of the organizational unit and try the following command

Get-Mailbox -Resultsize unlimited | where {$_.organizationalunit -eq "domain.com/Disabled Accounts"}
