Move Ad Computer Accounts from csv File into Target OU.

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 11:24 pm

In this example we will move selected computer accounts from csv file into target OU. You will need to prepare csv file similar the one below and name the first column “CN”  and save it to server where you will be running the script from.This script will be very handy if you need to move computers from different locations into selected target OU.

You will need to change few things within the script to make it work within your environment.

$TargetOU = ‘OU=Computers,OU=VA,DC=TekPros,DC=com’  (Change this to make sure it suits your needs)

Active Directory Moving Users to Another OU via CSV File.

Filed under: General — telnet25 @ 10:36 pm

In this task we will move AD users location from their current OU into different OU.

  • we will need to prepare CSV file contains all AD users ( names ) you wish to move into another OU ( Organizational Unit ) see the sample below. Name the first column as “name” and list all the account underneath.
  • Save this into a location on your server where you will be running the PS script from, for instance  C:\temp\Acc_MoveList.csv

This is the location where we will move all the accounts into

# Import AD Module
import-module ActiveDirectory

# Import CSV
$MoveList = Import-Csv -Path "C:\Temp\Acc_MoveList.csv"
# Specify target OU.This is where users will be moved.
$TargetOU =  "OU=SVC_Users,OU=VA,DC=TekPros,DC=com"
# Import the data from CSV file and assign it to variable
$Imported_csv = Import-Csv -Path "C:\temp\Acc_MoveList.csv"

$Imported_csv | ForEach-Object {
     # Retrieve DN of User.
     $UserDN  = (Get-ADUser -Identity $_.Name).distinguishedName
     Write-Host " Moving Accounts ….. "
     # Move user to target OU.
     Move-ADObject  -Identity $UserDN  -TargetPath $TargetOU
}
Write-Host " Completed move "
$total = ($MoveList).count
$total
Write-Host "Accounts have been moved succesfully…"

Few things you will need to change to run the PS,

  • $TargetOU =  "OU=SVC_Users,OU=VA,DC=TekPros,DC=com" ( you will need to change this to make sure it fits into your environment
  • $MoveList = Import-Csv -Path "C:\Temp\Acc_MoveList.csv" (you will need to change this to make sure it fits into your environment)

Once you make the changes you should be able to move the users listed on your CSV file with no issues.
