  • Bulk search & rename?

    We want to move to mandatory profiles to solve some corruption issues we are having, so I was wondering if anyone knows of a quick and easy way to rename all the user profiles from ntuser.dat to ntuser.man? We have some 1300 accounts to do, spread across 8 fileservers, so it will takes ages to do it by hand!

    Thanks for any ideas here...

    You could script it using a simple batch file

    ren ntuser.dat ntuser.man

      Would it not be better to change the path to all the users profiles in AD to the .man profile? that could be done in a matte of minutes.

      If you chance the .dat file that each user has personalised then you could end up with some problems such as users being stuck with their current desktop and favourites until an administrator clears it.

        These are locked down desktops, so users cannot create icons on the desktops that are persistant in any case... the problem is that we use CITRIX and the client does not work if you have a shared profile. Hence the need to change the existing profiles...
