I am trying to display the OU of a set of computer objects in Active Directory(from CSV)
I wrote this up and, it doesn't do anything, seems like a simple thing....
import-module activedirectory
$cred = Get-Credential
import-CSV C:\Users\ME\Desktop\scripts\servers.csv |
foreach-object {
Get-ADComputer $_.name  -Properties * | FT name, Distinguishedname
}

Open in new window

This works fine, if I give it  a server name "Get-ADComputer servername  -Properties * | FT name, Distinguishedname"

Should work (sort of), so your input file is probably incorrect.
You'll need a "real" csv with a header line, a column "Name", and only the host name in that column, not the FQDN.
As far as "sort of" is concerned:
- you're not using the credentials you're querying
- there's no need to retrieve all properties if you're filtering most of them out
- Format-Table should be at the very end, not inside the ForEach loop
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$cred = Get-Credential
Import-CSV C:\Users\ME\Desktop\scripts\servers.csv |
	ForEach-Object {
		Get-ADComputer $_.name -Credential $cred
	} |
	Format-Table Name, Distinguishedname
