I have some information in Exchange 2007 in Custom Attribute 1 - it is a web URL http:/server/photo/user name.jpg. I need to change half of the URL to point to a different server: http://newserver/directory/photo/user name.jpg.

I am trying to use ADmodify.net to make the changes but can't figure it out - I only need the first half of the string changed. Is there an easier/better way to accomplish this?

Thanks

This should work for you....assuming the photo names truly include the username? (username.jpg)

In ADModify whichever string you're modifying, use the following syntax:

http://newserver/directory/photo/%'samaccountname'%.jpg

(be sure to include the apostrophe's inside the percent signs as well)

When I try to add %'samaccountname'%.jpg I keep getting an error:
message="ADMODIFY.ERR - An error occured while parsing attribute . The error was: Could not find any recognizable digits." />

I works when i dont try to use any variables /%'dispalyName'%.jpg fails also

The string I am entering is http://servername/photos/%'samaccountname'%.jpg 
(the actual path does not exist yet - is that an issue?)

Thanks

Here ya go. For some reason when using a URL it wants another '/' before the variable (so two // after photos):

http://servername/photos//%'samaccountname'%.jpg

(and no, it doesn't need to be a valid path yet)

I ended up changing the path to only  /photos//'%displayName'%.jpg I still needed the extra slash to make it work. Thank you for your help.
