Is it possible to execute an LDAP Query in PowerShell? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I have a custom query that I run in ADUC for user count.  I'd like to run it in PS and email the results.

    I only need help on integrating the LDAP query in PowerShell.

    Thanks for the help,

  • Yes. Use a search engine.


    There's no need to be helpless.

  • Get-AdUser -LDAPFilter "name=jones"

  • As noted, use the -LDAPFilter parameter of Get-ADUser, or any other AD cmdlet (like Get-ADObject). If you use Get-ADUser, you do not need any of the clauses that restrict the result to user objects, as the cmdlet only retrieves info on users.
