    I'm not sure if this can be done with admodify but this would ideal for us.

    TIA,

    Yes.

    You might want to have a look at the XML Placeholders section:

    Bulk Modify for Active Directory - XML PlaceHolders

    This should work:

    <attr>givenName</attr> <attr>sn</attr> (student)

    or this

    <attr>displayName</attr> (student)

    Getting error when doing bulk operations

    Hi There,

    When i use the bulk modify to change the display name for the users the following error keeps cropping up.

    See the end of this message for details on invoking
    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    ************** Exception Text **************
    System.ArgumentException: An XML comment cannot contain '--', and '-' cannot be the last character.
    at System.Xml.XmlTextWriter.WriteComment(String text)
    at PasswordControl.frmBulkPasswordControl.applyBulkMo difications(List`1& bulkModifyTemplates, Boolean displayResults)
    at PasswordControl.frmBulkPasswordControl.bttnBulkMod ify_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnClick(EventArgs e)
    at System.Windows.Forms.Button.OnClick(EventArgs e)

    Any ideas?

    Ash.

    Hi,

    I think it might be because you have a user with a - at the end of their username. I wasn't aware of this XML specification requirement. I'll investigate further and include the fix in the next version of Password Control.

    As for the next version of Password Control, I've created a 2 minute video showcasing some new features:

    Password Control - New Features Preview

    * CSV Update
    * Editable GridView
    * Edit GridView in Excel

    Let me know what you think.

    I was hoping to get the new version of Password Control released over the weekend, but there are still a few updates I need to make to my website.

    Hopefully this is the next best thing.

    YouTube - Password Control - New Features (Version 2.4)

    Let me know if you like the video.
