Hello,

The following will move computers to a target OU:

$computers = Import-CSV c:\temp\computerlist.txt

$computers | % { 
     Get-ADComputer $_ | Move-ADObject -TargetPath "OU=New OU,DC=something,DC=somethingelse,DC=local"
}

Open in new window


You could do this all on one line, but I like to break things up a bit for readability.  I'm not sure what your second part of the question means, what are you looking to do after the computer has been moved?

HI Christopher , that works perfect .. the second part is just an output file showing the OU where the machines now reside after the move ..
