Hi:

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?

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

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!).

@bfaruque:

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

@Sqsm81:

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.
