    script for active directory

    Hi all, anyone got a script for modifying the 'member of' section of a user profile build? I have just entered the world of school ict and on doing my first pass of AD have discovered that all the students/staff are members of the Admin group!!
    the thought of accessing all the user accounts to rmove the unwanted groups doesn't fill me with everlasting joy

    thanks Stu

    You should be able to go to the properties of the group in ADUC, click on the members tab, highlight the members you want to remove and hit remove.

    Hi Chalkwellstu!

    Wow!...My background is also mainframes and AS400s....brings back memories! Really enjoyed working on AS400s until the company decided to go for 'cheap" intel servers and MS to run SAP. What a can of worms that was....But that's history and now I am in ICT in schools and getting to grips with w2k3 servers and Winxp clents......and beginning to enjoy. Hope you do aswell!

    well it would great if it wasn't for the children and the paranoid, insecure teachers that want to know why there laptop is so slow and when you explain that having napster and i-tunes as well as MSN running along with the 5 word programs and mathswhizz they get all twitchy and say its the laptop. :-)

    Re: script for active directory

    @ calapso & chalkwellstu.....

    As an ex-mainframe man myself, with 30 years + service I am glad to know I am not alone...... I thought I was 'last of the dinosaurs'

    I remember paper tape, punched cards, reels of tape, flashing lights, ferrite core memory.....
