How to remove roaming profile path in AD for multiple users?


I need to remove roaming profile path from AD for 300 users. Currently, we are using Windows 2003 and 2008 R2 Domain Controllers. Is there any built-in function or do I have to run any script?

You can do it with a script if you can generate a list of these user accounts or any other means of identifying the accounts that need to be changed. In this case, you need to provide more information about how to identify these accounts.
If you can select them easily all at once (or in just a few separate selections) in the ADUC, then you can simply open the properties, go to the "Profile" tab, check the box next to "Profile Path", clear the field, and click OK (note that this does NOT work in a "Search Results" window!).

If you run a search in AD then highlight the users and choose properties you should have access to the profile tab to change the profile path
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I don't want to remove roaming profiles from the local machines. I said, I need to remove the profile path from AD.


I can select multiple users but when I see their properties, profile field is empty, i.e. I can only give new path but I need to remove the paths that are configured already.

Let me specify more... I need to remove profile path...
Select new path, keep path empty, hope this helps.
