Posted in Hosting & IIS7, Windows Powershell, Windows Server | No Comment | 5,313 views | 02/03/2010 12:06

This is another way to check active directory user with Powershell. I made a function.

Function Check-ADUser
{
Param ($Username)
 
    $ADRoot = [ADSI]''
    $ADSearch = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher($ADRoot) 
    $SAMAccountName = "$Username"
    $ADSearch.Filter = "(&(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=$SAMAccountName))"
    $Result = $ADSearch.FindAll()
 
    If($Result.Count -eq 0)
    {
        Write-Host "No such user on the Server" | Out-Null
        $Status = "0"
    }
    Else
    {
        Write-Host "User exist on the Server" | Out-Null
        $Status = "1"
    }
 
    $Results = New-Object Psobject
    $Results | Add-Member Noteproperty Status $Status
    Write-Output $Results    
}

Usage:

Check-ADUser -Username "yusufozturk"

You can use this function with Status property. It’s useful.
