How do I update in Active Directory the attribute "MAIL"
Posted on 2015-01-05
In investigating Google Password Sync to determine why it is not syncing when a user makes a password change, I discovered that the Users attribute in the ACTIVE DIRECTORY USERS is set to his email@example.com when it should be FLastname@domain.com. Google expects the username to match in the domain and in Google Apps. Our Google Apps user name is FLastname@domain.com.
How do I do a mass update to change the attribute from nickname@ to FLastname@? Or how do I get a list of what they are so I can identify the ones that need to be fixed.
Windows 2008 r2 sever is the Primary, and we have two secondary domain controllers that are W2K R2.
I can go in and EDIT each user, but that could be time consuming. Yet, doing a mass update can be problematic in that some users "MAIL" is already FLastname.
