This was awesome. I found so many links to deleting the " in the environment variable(which did not work). I did this and it installed like a champ!

comment How can I create Organizational Units recursively on Powershell?
You could just have it check at each level and create it if it doesn't exist right? Instead of trying to create the whole OU path in one command.

What is the error message? Did you put the DN in quotes if there are spaces in it?

comment What the heck is going on with this AD filter in PowerShell?
Like and notlike seem to work similarly. {description -notlike "something"} does not work, but {-not (description -like "something")} does. Also the one that works takes considerably longer to evaluate. Like the broken one isn't evaluating all the objects it should.

comment What the heck is going on with this AD filter in PowerShell?
Interesting that piping it through Where-object and applying the filter that doesn't work above works. get-aduser -filter * -Properties description| ?{$_.description -ne "Auto"} | measure

comment Any way from a command line to change the DNS suffix of a Win7 PC?
You can do it with powershell and get-wmiobject, but need to know what value you are actually looking to change as MDMarra said.

I just looked through System.IO.Compression and ZipFile isn't there. Is there an update to 4.5 that adds it?

If you don't know where that is run "netdom query fsmo" from a commandline and that will give you all the FSMO role holders.

comment How do I find orphaned computer objects in Active Directory using PowerShell?
Looked into it a little more and lastlogondate looks like it is just the conversion of lastlogontimestamp. There is no attribute called lastlogondate in the schema. Hope that helps.

comment How do I find orphaned computer objects in Active Directory using PowerShell?
I am going to have to look into to be 100% sure, but I know that lastlogondate is one of the attributes that is returned if you look at the object, passwordlastset is not. The technet article doesn't really detail which attribute it uses.
