Hi

We have Windows 2012 DC and we have a OU where 200 users are created. I want to export their full name , user name and password.
I have used CJWDEV AD info Free Edition in the past and completely forgot how to import users from specific OU.

Please can you post me , if there is any Free tool to do this .

Thanks

Powershell:
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties DisplayName -SearchBase 'OU=SomeOU,OU=Wherever,DC=domain,DC=com' |
	Select-Object -Property DisplayName, SamAccountName |
	Export-Csv -Path C:\Temp\ADUsers.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window


You can't export their passwords, nor is there any need for anyone to know anybody else's password.

Like OBDA said, you cannot export passwords.

Other than that, you will to get what you want with CSVDE (run from CMD prompt).  Try something like this...

csvde.exe -d "ou=MYOU,dc=MYDOMAIN,dc=local" -r objectClass=user -l DisplayName,userPrincipalName -f user-objects.csv
