Filtering a list of usernames based on OU or Container

Recently I was given a list of usernames and asked to find all the user who were in a specific OU in Active Directory.  This sounds complicated but is actually quite easy to do with powershell in 3 easy steps:

Step 1: I created a txt file with the list of usernames called userList.txt

Step 2: I then created a simple powershell script to read in username and return the users DN

Step 3: If the users DN contained the OU I was looking for I appended that users info to a new file called matchedUsers.txt

&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;amp;gt;&amp;amp;lt;br /&amp;amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

The result is you get a file output with all username and userDNs that are located in the container or OU you wanted to search for.
