Use ADSI to Search Computers in Active Directory

Other Posts in this Series:

This post provides a simple example of how we can use ADSI to search computers in Active Directory. You may wish to further optimise this by using LDAP filters.

#only computers
$objSearcher=[adsisearcher]'(&(objectCategory=computer))'
$objSearcher.PageSize = 200
#specify properties to include
$colProplist = "name"
foreach ($i in $colPropList) { $objSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add($i) | out-null } 
$colResults = $objSearcher.FindAll()
foreach ($objResult in $colResults)
{
#computer name
$assetname = ($objResult.Properties).name    
write-host $assetname  		
}
