  • Address Details

    Hi People (first Post)

    i always read petri for help in certian areas but there is one i cannot find

    in AD on under your users details you have an 'Address' Tab

    as the companies users are already set up is there a default template somewhere i can change to automatically fill in all this information with out going through each user individually

    as all users on our list will have the same address unless I state differently

    i have been set this completely boring task of going through each user and making sure it all is up to date...but having to fill in the same information constantly is a pain under the address tab

    any quickfire way of doing this?

    running windows 2003/exchange 2003 systems

    any help would be great

    Open ADUC and multi-select all the users that you need to change. Right click and choose properties. There are many common properties that will be available for edit on the different tabs. There is a checkbox in front of each. Only the ones that you check will be updated when you click OK.

          there are many tools in Internet to set these kind of normal things in AD. like office, fax no, department, description, many attributes. The one is use is quest active roles which can be used to create templates on OU level. Hope it helps.

          alternatively u can use a script to modify the required attributes. Have attached the file , check it out

          cheers, Bala
