Example text

Txt Add-ADGroupMember -Identity TestGroup -Members $Users In the previous example, we saw how to add user accounts to a text file. Now, let's see how to add all users from an Organizational Unit to a security group by using the following command: $Users = Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=LAB,DC=techibee,dc=ad" -Filter {objectclass -eq "User" } Add-ADGroupMember -Identity TestGroup -Members $Users The first line in the preceding code will query all users in the given Organizational Unit and store the details in the $User variable.

Other fields are optional at the time of user creation and can be updated later. You might have also noticed that the password is not specified at the time of creation, so Active Directory keeps this field in a disabled state until the password is set. Once the password is set by the administrator, the user object has to be enabled explicitly. Similarly, when a user account is created using PowerShell, it has one mandatory property that must be passed, the Name parameter. This parameter is equivalent to the Full Name value in UI.

You get requests from HR to delete user accounts on a frequent basis either when an employee leaves the organization or he/she turns down the offer just before joining. Most organizations won't delete user accounts when an employee leaves the organization. Instead, they will hide these from the Global Address List/Book (GAL), remove them from all groups, disable the mailbox, and keep the ID in a disabled state. Such accounts can be enabled if the employee rejoins the company later. Removing a user account from Active Directory is a straightforward process.
