  • Edit the server name under home profile in AD

    Hi All,

    We are in the process of replacing a server that hosts all the user home folder . We have almot 900 users. I s there a way I can edit the the server name deom a cmd line or a utility without having to go thro ever user in AD and change the server name from server1 to server2.

    Thanks

    You can bulk select users in ADUC and change the profile path -- use the %username% variable which will be replaced with the correct username when you apply the update

      I've done this for changing the homedir using a VBscript but the same can be done for profiles of course.
