Need power shell script to move a system to 1 of 3 OU's based on a registry entry

I need to come up with a script that will look at a registry entry on a system and based on that setting the script will move the system to 1 of 3 ou's.

Any thoughts on how to do this. It's above my abilities to script.

Which registry entry are you going to key off of and do you already have a script that will move a system into a specified OU (without making any comparisons that is)?

I don't have the keys yet, but I have a script I've used to moves systems. How would I reference a reg key from the script?

import-module ac*
gc e:\scripts\move_systems_to_ou\pclist.txt | % {
Get-ADComputer $_| Move-ADObject -TargetPath "New_OU"

Quick solution for one-time access to a value:
(Get-ItemProperty "HKCU:\Control Panel\Colors").Background

Open in new window

If you want to access several values inside the same key, it's more readable to get the key and then access the properties:
$Colors = Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Control Panel\Colors"

Open in new window
