    Export the details of Active Directory Users

    Seasoned Veteran

      Hi All,


      Can you please suggest how to extract the details of users from Active directory from Unix server.


      In windows it was done by


      csvde.exe -f "C:\Test\AD_Extract.txt" -s xy1.xy.ad.com -l "dn,objectClass,cn,sn,c,l,st,street,title,description,postalCode,telephoneNumber,givenName,displayName,co,department,company,physicalDeliveryOfficeName,msExchAssistantName,proxyAddresses,streetAddress,extensionAttribute9,msExchAssistantName,mailNickname,employeeNumber,name,countryCode,sAMAccountName,division,mail,mobile" -r "(&(objectClass=user))" -u -n.



      This utility will extract the data from Active directory and save it .txt comma seprated format.




      In Unix i have Qwest software installed and through vastool i am trying to extract the same thing.


      But here i am doing following steps 


      1.) i have to run vastool list users to get the list of users.

      2.) then for each users i have to run vastool attrs -u username to get the details


      It is taking almost 2 hours to fetch the deatils of 4-5 lakhs records and also has to made a script to get the data in correct format.



      In windows through csvde it was taking only 10 minutes.




      Can anyone please suggest how to go through this in Unix.
