'Comment' AD Attribute for a computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm having an issue adding text to the comment attribute in AD using powershell for a computer object.

    I have used the follwoing (from MS technet article) to update the 'description' field but cannot use the same process for the 'comment' field.

    "Import-Module ActiveDirectory
    Import-CSV "D:\Dump\Scripts\CTest.csv" | ForEach-Object {
    $Computer = $_.ComputerName
    $Comm = $_.Comment
    Set-ADComputer $Computer -comment $Comm }

    obviously I changed the fields over from the MS example ($_.description & -description $desc)

    even if I try and simply run the command  from powershell it doesn't work...


    set-adcomputer COMPUTERNAME -description DESCRIPTION_TEXT


    set-adcomputer COMPUTERNAME -comment COMMENT_TEXT

    Error = Set-ADComputer : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'comment'.

    BUT this will pull back the current comment - I inputted some test text through AD Users n Computers

    Get-ADComputer COMPUTERNAME -properties comment

    Any ideas would be greatly recieved - have 2000 to update and doing via CSV is going to be MUCH easier.
