Is it possible to MASS change multiple object properties....

I'm trying to mass change all of my users in my domain to have a differen't "description" when viewing the properties in Ad.  I don't like the idea of going into every single account (3000+) to change he description.

I use the "description" tab as part of address book properties in exchange 2000, thats why I need to mass change a bunch of users.

Is there anyone out there that knows if this is possible..

thanks in advance,
Seth

Hey Seth,


I saw this software a while back that looks like you could use the free trial to do what you want. http://www.systemtools.com/hyena/user_frame.htm
It's called hyena, but they have a bunch of tools to help out, most with a free trial (60 days).  Let me know if this helps.

usually you would write a VB script using ADSI to change it.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Hi Seth,
like Jonas1 says you can use Hyena to do multiple user changes.  We use it here a lot for that sort of thing - works great even with Active Directory - you can make changes to multiple accounts with affecting the other properties on the user - and yes - there's a free trial :-)

Failing that you can script it using ADSI etc but Hyena is much easier and quicker and can do lots of other things too.
