Hi, it has been awhile since I needed the expert's advice/assistance.  Not sure what that means.  LOL.

Anyways, I am needing to change all usernames (full names) of a particular OU to all lowercase for a database migration.  I thought I read somewhere a long time ago about such a thing or technique to accomplish this.

Currently, I am running...

Server: Windows Server 2003 - Standard
Active Directory : LDAP
OU: contains about 3500+ accounts

The usernames first letter are capitalized and the rest lowercase.  I am required to modify all these usernames to all lowercase.

Any ideas or links would be amazingly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
