Works like the find and replace in Word, Excel etc.

An amazingly simple and easy way to make bulk changes to Active Directory Users and Contacts.

AD Find and Replace is designed to perform the familiar find and replace operation with Microsoft's Active Directory. The easy-to-use Graphical User Interface to help make the process as quick and as easy as possible.

  • Find and Replace text within Active Directory
  • Quick and extremely easy to use
  • A great time saver for busy administrators
  • Use Wildcards
  • Preview before making any changes

Next time you change a server name and need to update the Home Directory path or the profile path for a large number of Users in Active Directory simply use AD Find and Replace.

If a company you regularly deal with changes their name and you need to update your Contacts in Active Directory simply use AD Find and Replace.

If time is important to you and you need to perform quick and easy changes to Active Directory why waste time scripting changes when you could use AD Find and Replace.

Wildcards

You can use the following wild cards in the 'Replace with' text box:
%username% (sAMAccountName, Users Logon Name)
%firstname% (givenName, First Name)
%lastname% (sn, Last Name)
%initials% (initials, Initials)
%email% (mail, Users E-Mail Address)

Example use:

The example below would replace \\server\share\jsmith with \\server2\share2\jsmith, the wildcard %username% reads the users sAMAccountName value, this is incredibly useful when you need to change paths that contain usernames.
