How are your users setup on their home folder.
Is it something like \\servername\sharen\%username%
and now it is chaning to \\Newserver\share\%username%  
Admodify is a good tool for this (easy to undo changes if you need to)

if you just need to change the path you can do this in a login script.  Did you need to move the old home directory to the new location?

If you do end up going with admodify you would use the following in your profile path
\\servername\homedir\'%samaccountname%'
...see screenshot from my test server where the share is changed to new
test on a few accounts first to get a feel for it.
Thanks

I  need to change syntax only in AD based on existing home folders
I have two  file servers and users got split between two of them based on login name ex:
\\server1\home\%username% need to be changed to \\server1\homedir\%username%
and
\\server2\home\%username% need to be changed to  \\sever2\homedir\%username%

mkline71 ...

Is the syntax '%samaccountname%' as in your text
or %'samaccountname'% as in your graphic?
