Rename Multiple AD Users with One Operation
Adaxes allows modifying properties of multiple AD objects with the help of templates used for generation of property values. To rename several users in one operation, you need to modify the Name property of these users. In this tutorial you will learn how to rename multiple AD users using the LastName, FirstName format.
Launch Adaxes Administration Console and select the users you want to rename. Right-click the selection and select Add/Modify Property from the context menu.
- If all users you need are located in one OU or Business Unit, select this OU or Business Unit in the Console Tree and then select users in the Result Pane (located on the right).
- If the users are located in different OUs or in different AD domains, you can add these users to the Basket and then select them there. To add a user to the Basket, right-click this user and click Add to Basket in the context menu or just drag'n'drop this user to the Basket.
- Also, you can perform a directory search and then select the users you need in the search results.
In the Add or Modify Property wizard, check the Show all properties check-box, select the Name property in the list and click Next.
At the next step, enter a template used to generate user full names in the Property value field and click Finish.
If necessary, repeat these steps for the Display Name property.
