In Description I have: “y.y”. I need to obtain: y.y + “origin” + paste what was in Object tab filed + “Disalbed xx/xx/2018”.

Pls help txxx

sorry for my english :wink:

So lets break down that command you found.

Get-Content D:\script\moveruser.csv |

Get the users from your csv, although since you’re coming from a csv an import-csv would parse this better for you. If you had a .txt file then Get-Content would be the route you wanted

Get-ADUser |

Retrieve the ADUser object for the DN you imported

Move-ADObject -TargetPath “OU=test2,DC=contoso,dc=org” -PassThru |

Move the object to the new OU, including the passthru parameter so you get some output to pass onto the disable command.


Disable that account


You probably want to write this out into more of a script than a one liner. This will give you greater flexibility in what to do with it. I’m writing this on the fly with no testing and not 100% what you mean by your “y.y” statements, but it will hopefully get you moving down the right path.

$Users = get-content D:\script\moveruser.txt

ForEach ($user in $users)


$userobj = get-aduser $user

$description = "$userobj.description Disabled on "+(get-date).ToShortDateString()

set-aduser $userobj -replace {description="$description"}

disable-adaccount $userobj

Move-ADObject $userobj -TargetPath "OU=test2,DC=contoso,dc=org


You could also use the import-csv rather than get-content of your csv file. But then you’d need to know what your column header is named to reference the property. But since I don’t know that I’m just assuming your csv is a single column of DNs that can be moved to a txt file.


duplicate, sorry
