I would like to search for users in entire domain and update some attributes mostly extended attributes. I have samaccountname in CSV file

Is this possible? I can do this for domain where my account exist but for all other domains not possible. I am looking to updated entire forest

Can this be done using Powershell or Quest commands

Any help would be appreciated

Note that you need Enterprise Admin permissions to update in all domains.
This should get you started (using the Quest tools)....

$DomainList = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Forest]::GetCurrentForest().Domains
foreach ($Domain in $DomainList) {
$Connection = Connect-QADService $Domain

Disconnect-QADService $Connection
