Move and Disable PC's in Quest Powershell

Good Afternoon,

I've written a script to move a list of pc's to a new ou and have them disabled. Can anyone assist with this?

$Computers = Get-content C:\Users\adjustin\Desktop\Test183.txt | ForEach-Object {Get-QADObject -identity $_ | Disable-QADComputer -id $_| Move-QADObject -identity $_ -NewParentContainer Marked_for_Deletion/Disabled_Workstations }

You do not have to use quest cmdlets to accomplish this. See below...

Import-module activedirectory
$OU = "ou=move,dc=domain,dc=com"
$DC = ""
$Computers = get-content "c:\filename.txt"
ForEach ($user in $Computers)  {

$props = Get-ADcomputer -identity $user -properties samaccountname, distinguishedName -Server $DC

Move-AdObject -Identity $props.distinguishedName -TargetPath $OU -Server $DC

Set-ADComputer -Identity $user -Enabled $false -Server $DC

Thanks Will,

Is there anyway to do it with quest cmdlets? Im still learning how to do this?

Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
I never use Quest cmdlets as it is just added pluggin's and modules that are not required. This is why i did this using the native cmdlets above.
