I'm trying to lookup a username from dsquery using the office parameter as we store IDs inside of the office parameter.

Any ideas on how to get their username?

I tried

dsquery user -office "IDHERE"

but I got an unknown parameter error.

dsquery does not have an attribute office. dsget does.

Something like this (untested) should to the job:

dsquery user -limit 0 | dsget user -full -office

Good idea. Saved my day! –  Jamie H Jan 28 '13 at 10:34
    
So in the end I did the following command PS C:\Windows\system32> dsquery user -name * -limit 0 | dsget user -upn -display -office >> E:\output\output.txt –  Jamie H Jan 28 '13 at 12:38
