So I accidentally put 500+ users in 1 OU and they are supposed to be slip into 2. I could easily split them by the beginning portion of their username, but I can't seem to find a way to list usernames in AD, is this possible?

TIA

you want to see usernames in active directory on server 2008... i dont understand how this isn't possible...


start > run > dsa.msc
view > add/remove columns
checkmark by "user logon name", hit ok

sort by username

note:  "user logon name" will be something like user@domain.com
but you could add the column "exchange alias", which will be just  the "user"  part in most cases
