DSGET.exe – Windows CMD Command

View active directory objects.

Special characters in distinguished names

Commas within a CN must be escaped with the backslash \ character
e.g. “CN=Company\, Inc.,CN=Users,DC=F4T,DC=com”

Backslashes must also be escaped with a backslash
for example, “CN=Sales\\ Latin America,OU=Distribution Lists,DC=F4T,DC=com”

If any value contains spaces, use quotation marks:
e.g. “CN=John Smith,CN=Users,DC=F4T,DC=com”

Redirection
You can pipe results from DSQUERY into DSGet in order to view multiple objects. If the DN contains any commas or backslashes you will need to redirect to a file first and add the escape characters as above.

Special Tokens
The token $username$ (case insensitive) can be used to place the SAM account name.
Entering * as a password will cause DSMOD to prompt for the new password.

For any DS command, you can enter multiple values separated by spaces.
e. class=”quote”g. to modify several user accounts at once just supply a list of the distinguished names separated with spaces.

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly suppose this website needs way more consideration. I’ll most likely be once more to learn far more, thanks for that info.
