ADSI - How do I set the user property userworkstations to allow logins to all computers.

I have come training users restricted to thetraiing computers only but this had caused problems with Citrix which I have not been able to solve.

I need to remove the computers from the userworkstation property but if I try to set it to "" or null I get an error.

I'm using   objUser.Put "userWorkStations", Null

Using objUser.Put "userWorkStations", "computer1,computer2" works fine

Any Ideas?

This solution came from the folowing website:

you'll have to modify line 4 ( begins w/ ldap ) line to fit your environment

Set objUser = GetObject _
    ("LDAP://cn=Ken Myer,ou=Finance,dc=fabrikam,dc=com")
objUser.PutEx ADS_PROPERTY_CLEAR, "userWorkstations", 0
