Get the Parent OU for an AD Object

Posted on September 7th, 2015

I have mentioned before that the Charlotte PowerShell User group was frequented by Scripting Guy Ed Wilson, and his wife Teresa. I’m sad to say that they have moved away, but am happy that Brian Wilhite has been running the meetings since.  I mentioned to Brian that I had a cool way to get the parent container of an Active Directory object using ADSI:

The string method is, of course faster. But If the parent object isn’t an OU, try the first method. It always works.

All the scripts are saved as .txt files. Newer files have a "View Script" button which will let you save or open a script in notepad. For earlier posts, the easiest way to download with IE is to right click on the link and use "Save Target As". Rename file from Name_ext.txt to Name.ext.
