Listing the OUs in a Domain

Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to enumerate all the organizational units (OUs) in a domain.

The following example demonstrates how to enumerate all the OUs in the Fabrikam.com domain:

Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Filter {Name -like '*'} | FT Name, DistinguishedName -A

In addition to the standard Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) attributes, you can retrieve the following extended properties of the Get-ADOrganizationalUnit cmdlet by using the -Properties parameter:

  • StreetAddress

  • City

  • State

  • Country

  • PostalCode

  • Description

  • DisplayName

  • ProtectedFromAccidentalDeletion

  • AppliedGroupPolicies

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