Mass update of AD information

esbfern asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
We are in the process of migrating our end users from regular windows file servers which host their home directories to NetApp filers.  In all there's about 600 that will be going with the first move.  Basically what i need to do is do a query in ad that finds all users with \\servername in their AD profile as their home directory then modify that attribute with the new servername.  So for example if i have a user who's home directory is \\storm\joesmith$ i need to query for \\storm then update the attribute with \\ai-fas2\joesmith$.

I was looking through some joeware stuff using adfind and admod.  Anyone got an easy tool to do this?
