Powershell: Set Logon Hours for all the users in an OU


With the script in this post you’re able to set logon hours to a bunch of users. All you have to do is to setup logon hours for a “template” user and define this “template” user into the $template variable.


The other step is to define the $ou variable with the path to the OU. In my case this was ict-freak/Gebruikers.

The script will now read the default logon hours and will apply them to the users in the OU.

$template = "" # This is a user with the default logon hours
$ou = "" # the full path to your ou "domainname/ouname1/ouname2"

# Get the logonhours from the template user
$template = Get-QADUser $template -IncludedProperties logonhours
[array]$logonHours = $template.DirectoryEntry.logonHours

# Get all users
$users = Get-QADUser -OrganizationalUnit $ou

# Loop through all the users
foreach($user in $users){
    Set-QADUser $user.Name -oa @{logonHours = $logonHours}
