Updating active directory
Email Address is mail in ADSI, and Home Page is w WWHome Page in ADSI.
The first thing I do is import the Active Directory module.
I spoke at a conference a couple of months ago about Active Directory management and free tools available to help with Active Directory management.
One of the attendees from the presentation recently asked for some guidance using Power Shell to perform a bulk update of AD user information.
When in doubt, use the #Requires –version 3.0 to ensure compatibility.
After I import the Active Directory module, I create a variable to store the old company name (the one I will change in Friday’s blog post).
Blog post, where I also contrast it to string concatenation.
Initially, Active Directory was only in charge of centralized domain management.
Starting with Windows Server 2008, however, Active Directory became an umbrella title for a broad range of directory-based identity-related services.
A server running Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) is called a domain controller.
PS C:] One thing to keep in mind is that the parameter names do not line up with the ADSI attribute names that appear in ADSI Edit.
This can be a bit confusing when trying to update an older script that used ADSI.
