Back again with a new post in the Powershell and Active Directory series of posts. Remember when I said I will show you how to work with attributes that are not schema attributes? By default you can do a $var.schemaatrributename like $user.name or $user.DistinguishedName. This is not possible for for example the TerminalServiceHomeDrive attribute because this strange enough is not a schema attribute.
We start with were we left of in the Powershell and Active Directory Part 2/4 post. I will repeat the script blocks but for help on these read that post!
After that we continue with the get TerminalServicesProfile atrributes which are not in the schema.
Powershell and Active Directory Part 2/4
Variables Part 2
$TARGETOU = “OU=Users,dc=Bladiebla,dc=COM”
$ADSCOPE = “SUBTREE”
$strFilter = “(&(objectCategory=User))”
$objOU = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry(”LDAP://$TARGETOU“)
$ADSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$ADSearcher.SearchRoot = $objOU
$ADSearcher.PageSize = $ADSIZE
$ADSearcher.Filter = $strFilter
$ADSearcher.SearchScope = $ADSCOPE
AD Search Result
$ADResults = $ADSearcher.FindAll()
foreach ($ADResult in $ADResults)
$u = $ADResult.Properties
AD User Object
$user = [ADSI]“LDAP://$($u.distinguishedname)”
Make sure you notice that we did not close the loop with the }.
Powershell and Active Directory Part 3/4
$ALLOWLOGON = 1
$TSHOMEDRIVE = “H:”
$ALLProperty = “allowLogon”,”TerminalServicesHomeDirectory”
So now we can create the variables we are going to use in the next part of the Script
The variables we can use for the Terminal Services Profile Tab are
$ouuser = $user.psbase.get_parent()
$user2 = $OUUSER.psbase.get_children().find(“CN=$($user.name)”)
foreach ($property in $ALLProperty)
“$($Property) value: $($user2.psbase.invokeget($Property))”
In this part of the script we are going to extract the information from the Active Directory. What you can do here is for example create a variable with the value of the TerminalServicesHomeDrive. I used this for migrating the TS Home Drive to another location. In the next part of this blog series I will show you how to change these values.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me by e-mail or comments.
For now greetings and please come back later for the next part.
