Need help finding a script to add +1 to the telephone number in the general tab under an active directory user object. is this possible? I need to make this change to over 500 user objects in active directory. thanks.

P would look at using the  dsmod user.

You can do a dsquery to get the right person.

It will be something like
DSQUERY USER -samid doej| DSMOD user -phone1 8005551212

Open in new window

gc c:\userlist.txt | % {
$username = $_
$oldphone = GetADUser -Identity $username -Properties OfficePhone
$nuphone = "1" + $_.OfficePhone
Set-ADUser -Identity $username -OfficePhone $nuphone -whatif
}

Open in new window


Something like above should work (untested)

hello


You can use this Vbscript
Set ArrayUser = GetObject  ("LDAP://OU=test,DC=N2NetworkSolutions,DC=com")
ArrayUser.filter=Array ("user")
For Each objUser In ArrayUser
objUser.get "officePhone", phone
phone="+1"&phone
objUser.Put "officephone", phone
objUser.SetInfo
Next

for testing you can begin with a small test OU, then launch at large scale. The target can be configurated on the GetObject parameters.
