Hi,

I want to add "+45" to the existing phonenumber on all our users in AD, so a users phone number changes to "+45 #and their existing number#".

How can this be done with powershell?

Thanks in advance!

Assuming that the phone number is stored in a variable called $phoneNumber.....

$phoneNumber = "+45 $phonenumber"

Will do it.

Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties HomePhone | % {Set-ADUser $_ -HomePhone ("+45"+$_.HomePhone)}

if u need users under specific OU use -SearchBase, for eample:
Get-ADUser -Filter * -SearchBase 'OU=HumanResources,OU=UserAccounts,DC=FABRIKAM,DC=COM'  -Properties HomePhone | % {Set-ADUser $_ -HomePhone ("+45"+$_.HomePhone)}

Open in new window
