I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just an FYI, if you add in the scripting language those Experts will be able to see your question easier.

This code pulls alist of AD users and their Email Address.

Powershell?  Can this be set to export to CSV or XLSX? For the filter put in the OU?

Dustin SaundersDirector of OperationsCommented:
Yes-- Powershell is incredibly powerful for AD management.  Edit the -Path to where you want the file to export.
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties EmailAddress | Select-Object Name,EmailAddress | Export-Csv -Path "C:\path\to\export\users.csv" -NoTypeInformation

That worked however, I'm in a huge domain with an OU that is mine  Can I add the DN so I don't get the entire list of users?  Or even better the user name begins with wrm if I can user that.

Dustin SaundersDirector of OperationsCommented:
In the -Filter section you can specify criteria.
Get-ADUser -Filter {SamAccountName -like "wrm*"} -Properties EmailAddress | Select-Object Name,EmailAddress | Export-Csv -Path "C:\path\to\export\users.csv" -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window


If you want to get all users from a specific location, use -SearchBase
Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=Test,DC=domain,DC=local" -Filter * -Properties EmailAddress | Select-Object Name,EmailAddress | Export-Csv -Path "C:\path\to\export\users.csv" -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window


Just edit the DN for the starting location.  Or you can use the first one.
