    Not sure if this would work but try using ADModify and using the %USERNAME% variable in the pager attribute.

    Please note that i have not trie it so would be best to try on one user prior to rolling it out to many.

    I use ADmodify to change attributes for multiple users. The GUI version is easier to use. You can download it here:

    I used the varialble %username% but it needs to be %’sAMAccountName’% for it to pick up the users username.

    Tested on my account and works perfectly.

    Apparently youo need to use the AD variable for making the changes.

    %username% equates to %’sAMAccountName’%

    As they say everyday is a school day
