Use ADSI to Search Users in Active Directory

Other Posts in this Series:

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

$searcher=[adsisearcher]'(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user))'
$searcher.PageSize = 200
$colProplist = "samaccountname"
foreach ($i in $colPropList) { $searcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add($i) | out-null } 
$Users = $searcher.findall()
foreach ($user in $Users) {
write-host ($user.Properties).samaccountname
}
