AD Audit Script Q and A

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

I got the following comment on Part 3 of the script.

Hi Colin,

This is just what I need so I’m looking forward to the whole script!
I’m getting stuc on Get_Users because it is not recognized as a cmdlet, please help me?

So I am not sure how you have it set up but I think I have an idea of what is going on. One of two things.

1. You have the function below the main part of the script that calls the function. The function has to be before the main part of the script so that Powershell knows about the function.

2. The other thing is that you do not have the function defined in the {} brackets.

My assumption here is that the first thing is the issue. The Powershell ‘Engine’ looks for the function definitions before the function is called. It seems strange but that is how it works in many languages. So just make sure that you put all the functions above the function call and you should be good. Hope that this helps. Please let me know if you have any issues.
