Hi,

I'm looking for a powershell script that will give me users with an empty EmployeeID AND an emailaddress of emaildomain "@powershell.xyz"

I tried things like:
import-module activedirectory

Get-ADUser -Filter  {(Enabled -eq "True") | where {`
 ($_.EmployeeID -eq $NULL) -and`
 ($_.mail -like "powershell.xyz")
 } |`
 Select-Object -Property SamAccountName, Name|`
 Sort-Object -Property Name |`
 export-CSV .\result.csv -nti 

Open in new window


This does not give any results.
I hope someone can help me on this one !

Thanks in advance

Not making any changes to your code other than to add the wildcard and to add an empty string reference.

import-module activedirectory

Get-ADUser -Filter  {(Enabled -eq "True") | where {
 ($_.EmployeeID -eq $NULL) -or ($_.EmployeeID -eq "") -and ($_.mail -like "*powershell.xyz")
 } | Select-Object -Property SamAccountName, Name|  Sort-Object -Property Name |  export-CSV .\result.csv -nti

You are missing -Properties parameter and some small syntax errors.. Were condition wont work as there is no EmployeeID or Mail property passed to pipeline. -Properties * will allow you to pass all properties to pipeline..
Import-Module activedirectory
Get-ADUser -Filter {Enabled -eq "True"} -Properties * | where {
 ($_.EmployeeID -eq $NULL) -and `
 ($_.mail -like "*powershell.xyz")
 }|
 Select-Object -Property SamAccountName,Name |
 Sort-Object -Property Name |
 Export-CSV .\result.csv -nti

@Subsun, thanks for the catch on " -Properties * "
