      Windows 2012 R2 Powershell 5.1

      I run this command against a single OU the OU has 18 objects

      When the script runs it list many other objects not sure why.

      Here is the command

      Get-ADobject -Filter * -Searchbase "OU=Member-Servers,DC=my,DC=network,DC=com" -Properties ms-Mcs-AdmPwd, Cn | SORT | select cn, ms-Mcs-AdmPwd
      

      The OU looks like this

      SERVER01
      SERVER02
      SERVER03
      SERVER04
      etc…

      no other objects only these computer objects

      This is what it looks like

      cn ms-Mcs-AdmPwd

      I do not see those objects listed above in my OU

      GUI tools are designed to show *some objects. (Get-ADobject -Filter *) will show all.

      I changed it to -filter ‘Name -like “SERVER*”‘

      Now the list is shorter

      but some objects still appear

      further investigation needed here.

      Thanks

      I figured this out now.

      using get-adcomputer not get-adobject that lists only the computers in the ou

      This can be locked as resolved thanks
