Looking Up Managers In AD Using Powershell

Jana Sattainathan shows how to use Powershell to look up a group of Active Directory users’ managers:

Today, I received a request to find the manager for a whole bunch of users. This was a list of names (not UserId’s) in a Excel worksheet.

  2. Check the Manager property

  3. Lookup AD again for Manager to get the name

Click through for the script.  This does, of course, assume that the information is already in Active Directory somewhere.
