Try below code,

import-module activedirectory
get-aduser -filter * -searchbase "dc=contoso,dc=com" | select-object -Property samaccountname | %{set-aduser $_.samaccountname -Manager <NewManagerName>}

Open in new window


Please modify DN (DC=contoso , DC=Com) , according to your need ,  {Please be careful to select the right DN}

<NewMangerName> -->Your New manager Samaccount Name goes here.

Hope this help

Thanks,

-Prashant Girennavar.

pretending that the Windows ID for Alex Alexsen is alexa and the ID for Viggo Viggosen is viggov:

import-module activedirectory
get-aduser -Properties manager -filter {manager -eq "alexa"} | % {set-aduser $_.samaccountname -manager (get-aduser viggov).distinguishedname}

Open in new window

Try this..

Replace AlexAlexsen wiwth samaccountname of Alex Alexsen
Replace ViggoViggosen wiwth samaccountname of Viggo Viggosen

I have added parameter -WhatIf for testing, you can remove it for applying changes..

 $Manager = (Get-ADUser "AlexAlexsen").DistinguishedName
 Get-ADUser -Filter *  -properties manager | ? {$_.manager -eq $Manager} | Set-ADUser -Manager "ViggoViggosen" -WhatIf
