Hi Folks,

i have wrote this line here to get a count of all users from an OU
(Get-ADUser -Filter "objectcategory -eq 'user'" -SearchBase "OU=microsoft=com").count

Open in new window

however i'm also trying to add a filter where it would only select active users... this line here i know will pick this specifici object but I don't know how to tell it just to pick the ones that are active
(Get-ADUser -Filter "objectcategory -eq 'user'" -SearchBase "ou=microsoft=com" -properties * | select-object enabled).count

Open in new window

does anybody have any idea on how to accompllish it?

thanks for looking
