I have a server 2003 network and i am having trouble with user accounts.
I have ranger for networks installed which user account manager to manage users, but there are alot of users that are missing the "Username"@domainname in the account properties in AD, and ranger uses this field.
I have managed to put in the upn suffix "@domainname" for all users, but cannot put in their username.

Can someone help? Powershell was mentioned to me???

You could use the Quest cmdlets for Powershell to fix this. www.quest.com/powershell


$users = Get-QADuser -size 0
foreach($user in $users)
{
   $UPN = "$($user.sAMAccountName)@ad.londonacademy.org.uk"
   $user | Set-QADUser -UserPrincipalName $UPN
}

Open in new window

You have to install the cmdlets via the link I provided. If you did that you need to add them to the current shell like this

Add-pssnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement
