Finding an OU

Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to find an organizational unit (OU).

The following example demonstrates how to find the OU Test in the Fabrikam.com domain:

Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Identity Test, | ft Name,Country,PostalCode,City,StreetAddress,State -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.
