I am looking to replace incorrect information in AD using Powershell. For example, I ve recently added information within AD like Telephone numbers or Title but some of them are incorrect. Now I need to re-run the script to replace it the correct info but after running it wouldn't update.

Import-module ActiveDirectory
Import-CSV "c:\path-to-csv\file.csv" | % {
Set-ADUser -identity $_.SamAccountName  -HomePhone $_.Homephone -Title $_.title
}
                           
                              

Open in new window

             

This assumes you have a csv with headers matching

SamAccountName, Homephone, title

Here is my script below:

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Import-csv -path c:\jmiller\ITpeopledata.csv | Foreach-Object {

$User = $_.sAMAccountName
$OfficePhone = $_.OfficePhone
$Office = $_.Office
$streetAddress = $_.streetAddress
$postalCode = $_.postalCode
$title = $_.title
$department = $_.department
$company = $_.company
$manager = $_.manager
$Division = $_.division
$Status = $_.Status
$mobilephone = " "
$EmployeeID = $_.EmployeeID


set-Aduser $User -mobilephone $mobilephone -streetAddress $streetAddress -postalCode $postalCode -title $title -department $department -company $company -manager $manager -officephone $_.officephone -office $_.office -city $_.city -division $_.division -EmployeeID $_.EmployeeID
