Adtoolkit Samaccount modification in bulk

8 years 3 months ago #201 by boscojoseph
We are in a process of replacing the underscore to a dot for our AD user samaccountname ( Pre-Windows2000)
Eg. John_Dow to John.Dow

Looking to replace the existing _ to a dot for all samaccountnames

Is there a step by step that you could provide on how to achieve this.
Note= We are not looking to build the samaccountname from the existing First and Last Name.. but instead interested to just replace the existing underscore with a dot on all existing accounts..

Appreciate your feedback

The Search and Replace tool will accomplish this task for you. Access the tool from the ribbon at the top of the interface. The tool interface contains 3 tab pages. On the first Options page, select which Object you are working with (default is User) In Attribute to Search, select the radio button next to AD Attribute and select sAMAccountName in the dropdown. Next complete the Search Criteria options with an (underline) in the Find What and a (dot) in the Replace With.> Find What: _ Replace with: .

On the Scope tab, you can choose which part of your domain to run the process against. All or just a few OUs or a few users.

Return to the Options tab and locate the Run button at the bottom right. Click the down arrow which displays the Run Now or Run Simulation. This is where you can choose to run a Simulation first to see what objects will be affected by the change.
