    Changing Usernames

    hi guys,

    i have a new question for you all! we need to change our kids usernames to a new format for the introduction of our vle (frog) as at the moment they are in a very non standard format thanks to our LEA.

    we have a bunch of excel sheets we have done which have generated their new usernames, and paths for homedirs etc, but we have no actual utility to change these accounts en masse!

    does anybody know how we can do this?

    cheers

    I would use this

    http://www.wisesoft.co.uk/software/b...s/default.aspx

    You can update attributes by excel spreadsheet, save it, then when you close it it asks you which attributes you want to update.

    I'm not in the office to check, but ADModify might do what you want? I use it for the majority of our AD bulk work (although never needed to change format of username before!)

    ADModify.NET - Home

    I used the Wisesoft tool last year to change my user names with great success.

    thanks for the suggestions guys, I will try both. i have the wisesoft tool open at the moment, and it does look good! i'm looking for ways to change usernames in it at the moment, but incase i can't figure it out or their site doesn't have anything on it, can somebody point me in the right direction?

    btw, for our normal bulk creation of accounts, we use something called dovestones. very good software, creates all of the accounts with exchange mailboxes etc very quickly paid for, but good!

    <ot> If your VLE is requiring you to have usernames in a specific format, your VLE is broken. </ot>
