Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to connect to a well-known container. A well-known container is an object in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), such as Users or Computers, that contains other objects.

The following example demonstrates how to connect to the well-known containers in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS):

Get-ADDomain Fabrikam.com | FL UsersContainer,ComputersContainer,DomainControllersContainer,DeletedObjectsContainer,SystemsContainer,LostAndFoundContainer,QuotasContainer,ForeignSecurityPrincipalsContainer

For a full explanation of the parameters that you can pass to Get-ADDomain, at the Active Directory module command prompt, type Get-Help Get-ADDomain –detailed, and then press ENTER.
