I need to change the displayname attribute of every user in my active directory structure. I was going to us dsquery and pipe the results to dsmod, but I need to know if I can use active directory attributes to define what I want changed. For instance I was thinking:
dsquery user "ou=my ou,dc=mycompany,dc=com" | dsmod user -display lastname & firstname
but obviously I don't know how to pull the attributes for the firstname and lastname in ad. Does anybody know?
Excellent suggestion by Matt as usual, admodify is great. (and you can undo changes if you make a mistake using admodify)
Another way to do it via the command line is to use adfind and admod by MVP Joe
