Active Directory user data

5 pts.

Active Directory
We have 300 users loaded in Active Directory without any user attributes (e.g. address, office, phone, etc.)populated whatsoever. We run Exchange and are adding Help Desk software (Track-It) where this information would be very valuable. Is there any way to export the users, populate these attributes in a flat file (or another human useable format), and update the users in AD in bulk? I'm not an admin or network guy so a desktop user friendly solution would be great. Thanx, Rod

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are several good ‘migration’ tools that will do what you ask. Google ‘Active Directory Migration’. OR
Download the latest version of Microsoft’s Log Parser (2.2).
This tool reads AD objects, Event Logs, XML. Uses SQL type queries to select, order and output the data. And can write to CSV, TSV, SQL Server, etc.
Includes the formats of the objects it can read, with options for filtering. Specifies the formats it can output, with options. AND has a huge help file (443 pages single sided). Very handy for network management.
