Dear All,

I am creating a powershell script that list AD users who did'nt logon within 90 days. the script will export the result in a delimited .txt file

Search-ADAccount -UsersOnly -SearchBase "OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com"-AccountInactive -TimeSpan 90 | Get-ADUser -Properties Name, sAMAccountName, givenName, st, userAccountControl | Where {($_.userAccountControl -band 2) -eq $False} | Select Name, sAMAccountName, givenName, st, distinguishedName | export-csv c:\trash\90day-Inactive-users.txt -NoTypeInformation

I am getting the result in the attached file.

How can I remove CN=Toto Necessite, and only gets OU=Sales Administration Export,OU=Sedentary,OU=Users,OU=London,OU=UK,OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com in the DistinguishedName field?

Is there any way to achieve that?

Thks in advance

You can do that with a "calculated property":
Search-ADAccount -UsersOnly -SearchBase "OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com"-AccountInactive -TimeSpan 90 |
	Get-ADUser -Properties Name, sAMAccountName, givenName, st, userAccountControl |
	Where-Object {($_.userAccountControl -band 2) -eq $False} |
	Select-Object Name, sAMAccountName, givenName, st, @{n='OU'; e={($_.distinguishedName -split ',OU=', 2)[1]}} |
	Export-Csv c:\trash\90day-Inactive-users.txt -NoTypeInformation

Thks oBdA,

This is what I want. And If I just want to display OU=Sales Administration Export not the others OU, How can I achieve this?.

Just remove the ", 2" in the -split expression:
Search-ADAccount -UsersOnly -SearchBase "OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com"-AccountInactive -TimeSpan 90 |
	Get-ADUser -Properties Name, sAMAccountName, givenName, st, userAccountControl |
	Where-Object {($_.userAccountControl -band 2) -eq $False} |
	Select-Object Name, sAMAccountName, givenName, st, @{n='OU'; e={($_.distinguishedName -split ',OU=')[1]}} |
	Export-Csv c:\trash\90day-Inactive-users.txt -NoTypeInformation
