Hey Guys,

If I am trying to do a specific change for all users in a AD. Can that be done at once for all users?

Thanks,

Depends on the change, if you highlight the users in ADUC and right click and select properties you will see what you are able to change in bulk.
Another nice GUI method is ADModify http://www.codeplex.com/admodify
Admodify makes it easier to reverse out of the changes which I like.
There are also great command line methods such as using adfind/admod and powerhsell to name a few.
Thanks
Mike

For that just highlight all the users in that OU right click and select properties, you can edit logon hours (see screenshot)
Thanks
