What happened that you need to manually change this attribute?

It's pointing at the wrong Exchange server and CommVault is failing to see these mailboxes. When I manually change this attribute CommVault works successfully.
 
This is why I need this command.
 
Thanks.

$OU = "ou=1,dc=2,dc=3,dc=4"
$newhomevalue = "newservername"

$users = get-aduser -filter * -searchbase $OU

foreach ($User in $users)
{
set-aduser $user.samaccountname -Replace @{msExchHomeServerName=$newhomevalue}
}

Thanks but I need a command to run for all users that are located in a specific Exchange 2010 Database. Not Active Directory

import-module ActiveDirectory
$newhomevalue = "newservername"
$databasename = "your database"

#get users in database from $databasename
$Users = Get-Mailbox -database $databasename

#set every object with msExchHomeServerName to $newhomevalue
foreach ($User in $users)
{
set-aduser $user.SamAccountName -Replace @{msExchHomeServerName=$newhomevalue}
}
