Active Directory - modify 'msExchHomeServerName' Attribute for 100+ users

I have recently discovered that for some reason the 'msExchHomeServerName' Attribute in Active Directory is incorrect for a number of users.
 
I know how to modify this manually in ADSI Edit but is there a simply / script that would assist me in performing this task a lot quicker.
 
Thank you for your assistance.

You should be able to set this with PowerShell with a command like
Set-ADUser -Identity username -Replace @{msExchHomeServerName="/o=Org/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=EXCHANGE"}

Open in new window

To automate it further, you would want perform a query for the desired users and pass that info along to the Set-ADUser command instead of manually specifying the username.  Something like
Get-ADUser -filter {msExchHomeServerName -eq "/o=wrongOrg/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=EXCHANGE"} | Set-ADUser -Replace @{msExchHomeServerName="/o=Org/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=EXCHANGE"} -whatif

Open in new window

I have included the -whatif parameter at the end so that no changes will be made if you run the above.  Remove it when you want to run for real.

The second command is not working. Any ideas?

Get-ADUser -filter {msExchHomeServerName="/o=BUSINESS/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=ADRXGE02"} | Set-ADUser -Replace @{msExchHomeServerName="/o=BUSINESS/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=ASYDXGE03"}

Open in new window


Get-ADUser : Error parsing query: 'msExchHomeServerName="/o=BUSINESS/ou=Exchange Administrative Group 
(FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=ADRXGE02"'

Like it says, the operator is not supported (referring to "=").  As in my example you have to use "-eq" for the comparison operator.
Get-ADUser -filter {msExchHomeServerName -eq "/o=BUSINESS/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=ADRXGE02"} | Set-ADUser -Replace @{msExchHomeServerName="/o=BUSINESS/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=ASYDXGE03"}
