Get a specific OU to display from a DN with GET-ADComputer

I have this powershell script :

Get-ADComputer -Filter {(OperatingSystem -NotLike '*server*' -and OperatingSystem -NotLike '*Tap*')} -Property * -Searchbase "OU=Paris,OU=France,OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com" | Select-Object -Property name, @{label='Site';expression={$_.distinguishedName}}
It gives me this result :

name   Site                                                                                        
----   ----                                                                                        
DESKTOP10 CN=DESKTOP10,OU=Desktops,OU=Computers,OU=Paris,OU=France,OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com

How can I get the the OU Paris only that :

Name                          Site
--------                          -------
DESKTOP10                Paris

Like that, for example:
$SearchBase = "OU=Paris,OU=France,OU=Europe,OU=Root,DC=contoso,DC=com"
$Site = $SearchBase -replace '\AOU=(.*?),(OU|DC)=.*', '$1'
Get-ADComputer -Filter {(OperatingSystem -NotLike '*server*' -and OperatingSystem -NotLike '*Tap*')} -Searchbase $SearchBase |
	Select-Object -Property name, @{label='Site'; expression={$Site}}

Open in new window

And do AD a favor and don't retrieve all AD properties if all you need is the name (which is already in the default set returned).

Thks,

Could you explain to me the folling in details :

'\AOU=(.*?),(OU|DC)=.*', '$1'
0
oBdACommented:
It's a "Regular Expression"
\A - Start of string; "anchors" the following "OU=", so that it is only matches at the start of the string
OU= - plain string to search for
(.*?) - a "capturing group" that just captures any character ".", "*" repeated 0 or more times, "?"non-greedy (the shortest match will be used). This will contain the first OU's name.
, - a plain comma ...
(OU|DC) - ... followed by either "OU" or "DC" ...
= - ... and an equal sign ...
.* - ... and the rest of the string.
Just splitting at a comma would not always do the job properly, as an OU could be named "Paris, France".
