Just all users found in the source OU?
In test mode, will only display which users it would move; remove the -WhatIf at the end to run it for real.
$sourceOU = (Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Filter "name -eq 'Source'").DistinguishedName
$targetOU = (Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Filter "name -eq 'Target'").DistinguishedName
Get-ADUser -Filter *  -SearchBase $sourceOU -ResultSetSize $null | Move-ADObject -TargetPath $targetOU -WhatIf

I have a single domain and different OUs in that domain.
There are like 2500 users in 30 OUs.
1. I need out of 2500 users, 400 users move in to Newly created OU -- First Script.
2. New users ( not part of these 2500) to add in to domain and part of new ou. -- Second Script.

So how do you identify the users that need moving? Do you have a csv with SamAccountNames?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Yes.  I have user names.
