New Network - Student Migration
Hi guys, need a few ideas, Heres what I got:
I got an old broken CC3 Network (windows 2k3 server), and I'm moving to a new Vanilla Windows 2008 R2 server.
1. Moving staff is straightforward, usernames in new in old and new servers are the same.
2. The problem is a the students. I have 1000+ students who's usernames are a new format (not my idea, that's what the school wants).
my thought is I make one excel spreadsheet export users from old network to and new new network, with the following information
Old Network New Network
Username FirstName Lastname Home Directory Username Firstname Lastname Home Directory
Do a formula where firstname & Lastname Match and then move the old home directory to new home directory. To do this I need to a tool that can export from AD (Win2k3 and Win2k8), Username, First Name, Lastname (which is easy), but the IMPORTANT one is "Home directory". Any idea's?
