I am trying to take my script that works just fine for individual AD User Accounts and get it to read from a text file a list of
AD user names and then update their Home Directory within Profile HomeFolder.

Thanks again for the help

Script that works for individual AD User Accounts:

Set-ADUser -identity "UserName" -homeDrive h: -homeDir "\\ServerName\HOME"

Script that is not working properly:

Set-ADUser -identity ((Get-Content users.txt) -replace '$', '$') -homeDrive h: -homeDir "\\ServerName\HOME"

Error Msg:

Set-ADUser : Cannot find an object with identity: 'MedreconTest$' under:
'DC=test,DC=com'.
At C:\disabledshares\SetHomeDrive1.ps1:1 char:1
+ Set-ADUser -identity ((Get-Content users.txt) -replace '$', '$') -homeDrive
h: - ...
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (MedreconTest$:ADUser) [Set-ADUs
   er], ADIdentityNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Cannot find an object with identity: 'MedreconTe

you shouldnt need any dollar signs in the name


$users = Get-Content C:\users.txt | foreach {
Set-ADUser -identity $_ -homeDrive h: -homeDir "\\ServerName\HOME"
}
