Dear Experts.

Could you please help me with the  powershel code I am trying to amend to get it working  with a specific OU in AD where disabled users are stored?  I noticed some accounts are still enabled and most of them disabled as they should be. I am trying to find out how long account has been disabled or last logged on to system?  here is the code

import-module activedirectory
Search-ADAccount -AccountInactive -TimeSpan 120.00:00:00 -UsersOnly | where {$_.Enabled -eq $false -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "SystemMailbox*" -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "SVC_*" -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "SQL" -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "test"} | Get-ADuser -searchbase "ou=myou ,ou=users,ou=my ou,DC=mydc,DC=my,dc=local" -Filter {(Enabled -eq $false)} | Select samaccountname | Export-csv h:\test\export\test2.csv -nti

error is

Get-ADUser : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and its properties do not match any of the parame
ters that take pipeline input.

Search-ADAccount has the -searchbase parameter.
Example..
Search-ADAccount -searchbase "ou=myou,ou=users,ou=myou,DC=mydc,DC=my,dc=local" -AccountInactive -TimeSpan 120.00:00:00 -UsersOnly | where {$_.Enabled -eq $false -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "SystemMailbox*" -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "SVC_*" -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "SQL" -and $_.Samaccountname -notlike "test"} | Select samaccountname

There is  no such attribute which can tell you when the account is disabled, you can check the Modified attribute to find last date of modification of user object.

There is a LastLogonTimeStamp Attribute, you can refer following article to get more information.

From a powershell perspective, when you run into this type of error, its often helpful to take each statement and pipe it through "Get-Member" to see what type of object is being sent through the pipeline.  Some cmdlets dont support what comes through the pipeline and some only support the piped object using '-passthrough'
