Add date to description in AD.

by underoath23 at 2013-01-04 09:04:20

I am new to powershell. I am wondering how I would go about running a script that will insert the current date into the description field in AD for a User.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers

I should clarify that I know how to edit the description, just not how to place the current date in there instead of text I specify each time. I also would like to be able to run this script by using the samname as the parameter.

ok, I figured part of it out. For anyone who may want to know, I used: {description=Get-Date -Format u} using the set-qaduser cmdlet

This will return a more simple date, if desired:

$description = Get-Date -Format 'MM/dd/yyyy’

Param(
[Parameter(Mandatory=$true)]
[String]$samaccountname
)

$date = Get-date -Format 'MM/dd/yyyy’
Get-qaduser $samaccountname | set-Qaduser -description $date

---------

You should now be able to run this script like this in PoSh:

PathtoScript\Scriptname.ps1 -samaccountname Insertsamaccountname
