"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will need RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) installed

For starters, import the Active Directory Module into powershell
import-module Active Directory

Open in new window

To change the users password (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/addsadministration/set-adaccountpassword?view=win10-ps)

Set-ADAccountPassword -Identity USERNAME -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "PASSWORDHERE" -Force)

Open in new window

To zero out the fields:
#this command populates the a variable with all of the properties for the user account
$user = get-aduser -properties *

Open in new window

to see them all, just call the variable by itself


Open in new window

To change them:

$user.ProfilePath = ''
$user.ScriptPath = ''
$user.HomeDirectory = ''
$user.HomeDirectory = ''
$user.HomedirRequired = $false

Open in new window

Do this to as many of the fields as you want to

once you are finished updating fields in your variable, publish them:

set-aduser -instance $user

Open in new window

to remove all of the users groups:

Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership USERNAME | ? {$_.name -ne "Domain Users"} | % { Remove-ADGroupMember
$_.name -Members USERNAME}

Open in new window

I no longer have an Exchange Server to test with, so I cannot confirm this, but to remove the user's Mobile devices, the code could look something like this:

Get-ActiveSyncDevice -Identity USERNAME | Remove-ActiveSyncDevice

Open in new window
