dear experts,

I am trying to clean up our AD environment. this is what I would like to achieve:

1) search giving accounts in csv format based on Samaccount name  in AD
2) change user home folder path to "local path"
3) disable the account and move user account to a specific OU called "leavers OU"

could you please help me with a PowerShell code?

thanks, Tested it now and it worked but instead of c:\temp can we change it "local Path" under home folder tab  option that is available in AD.  I think you misunderstood me on this. there are two options in account properties;  local path and "connect" I just need Local path tp be selected and left blank. is it possible?
