AD 2012 Move Atrribute Mobile Phone to Pager

I'm trying migrate AD attributes from Mobile Phone to Pager field for all users accounts. but while running the code below im getting an error.

"A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'pager'"

I have more than 300 users in AD last time it took me 1 day to manually add all the data.


$Users = Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties MobilePhone,Pager

foreach ($user in $Users){
Set-ADUser -pager $User.mobilephone -whatif -verbose
}

Open in new window

Had a couple syntax errors.  It will copy the data.  It will not clear out the MobilePhone data, but that's easy enough to do later or even add the -Remove parameter to the below.
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties MobilePhone,Pager | ForEach `
{
    $user = $_
    $user | Set-ADUser -Add @{pager = "$($user.MobilePhone)"} -whatif -verbose
}

You would need to remove the -whatif parameter to run for real.  As with anything you should test before executing on production users.

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

Just because Set-ADUser doesn't have a parameter for pager doesn't mean it can't modify that attribute.  You can use the -Add, -Replace, -Clear, and -Remove parameters to modify any attributes (that aren't otherwise blocked) by referencing their ldap displayname.
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties MobilePhone,Pager | ForEach `
    $user = $_
    $user | Set-ADUser -Add@{pager = "$($user.mobile)"} -whatif -verbose
}
