Hi EE

I have a couple hundred accounts that I need to remove the Profile Path from.
Ideally I would like to enter the sAMAccountNames into a text file and have the
Profile Path removed from those accounts .

I am able to update it using the app below but cant seem to remove it using that app.

I know PowerShell can do it :)

Hi  wdfdo1986

I cant select multiple accounts at once since they are all in different OUs . I could try moving them all to one OU , make my change then move them back , but not what I was looking for .
