Q

How do I change the home directory path for multiple users in AD?

In NT4's User Manager for Domains you could control-click a bunch of users and change the path of the home directory for all of them in one shot. In the Active Directory Users and Computers program in Windows 2000, you can't do this. Do you know of a way to do this in Active Directory? We are moving our user home directories to another server and we just want to change the server name in the home directory path for multiple users without going into each object.
Write a batch file script to perform the operation using the net user commands.
