Are you doing this with the AD modules imported into Powershell? Try:

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Open in new window

What type of server are you running the command from?  If the server does not have RSAT or ADDS features installed, the command won't do anything.

Remember to always precede your command with "Import-Module ActiveDirectory" in PowerShell.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You command does not look correct. Assuming there is more than one name in the CSV file, how does this command loop for each name?

Replace "%" with "ForEach-Object" and it should run fine.

Import-csv C:\Temp\input.csv | ForEach-Object {Set-ADUser $_.User -Office $_.Office -StreetAddress $_.StreetAddress -City $_.City -state $_.state -postalcode $_.postalcode}

PowerShell 2.0 is not compatible?  Provide the error you are getting.

Does it run in PowerShell instead of the Exchange Management Shell?

I have no issues running the command I provided in PowerShell or the Exchange management shell.

@Todd: "%" is the alias for Foreach...

@Jorge: - Please give this rewrite a shot...

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$Userlist = Import-csv C:\Temp\input.csv
Foreach ($User in $Userlist) {
	Set-ADUser $User.User -Office $User.Office -StreetAddress $User.StreetAddress -City $User.City -state $User.state -postalcode $User.postalcode
}
