Our Active Diretory user base consist of a few hundred users. We have a previous login script that we where using and would like to update it with a new script. Is there a way in AD to update everyone's login script from a command line or within AD?

so for example....... to make things clear of what I am asking

in AD, under users profile. Login Script says: Oldscript.bat

I would like to change this script so that is says: Newscript.bat

on everyone's account without manually having to do so.

Some user profiles do not have the login sript which is why I would need to add it to their profile. otherwise I would do your way.

You can batch modify the users right from within the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC.

Select all the users you want by holding down the shift key and clicking each user.
Right click a selected user and select properties.
Go to profile and check off logon script and change it to the value you want.

click apply and it will modify each user.

Hope that helps.
