OU/Description Informaton for Multiple Computers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings to all, and happy new year!

    I have a list of over 3000 computers that are located in different domains in my network. 

    I need to provide OU and description information for all of them.

    I currently perform a manual search through Active Directory, where I'm able to search the entire directory and view in the "published at" column.

    Obviously, this is very time consuming.

    Is there a simple way to accomplish this by having either powershell or windows command search my list? 

    I have this list in an excel spreadsheet.  Is there a vb script that I can run?

    Finally, is there a piece of free software that could help me?

    I've experimented with the DSQUERY COMPUTER, DSGET COMPUTER, and a couple of powershell commands but they all only display information for just the computers that are within the domain I'm logged into, and I can only get either the OU or the description.

    Any information anyone provides would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
