A colleague of mine asked me to write a script with the Active Directory users with an account about to expire. So I created this script for him:

For a migration from Windows 7 to Windows 10 it is needed to do the following with the users’ account:
- Move it to a different OU
- Add it to a new VDI group
- Add it to the new application groups
- Remove it from the previous application groups
- Clear the profile path, if needed.

During the migration, it was needed to inventory the directory access on several file servers. So we could easily monitor the access rights on several directories on the file servers. Some applications are started from a UNC path. So we could add the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ group and check if that has been done properly.

The customer I am working for asked me to write a script that removes the profile path from the users’ profile in Active Directory. One of the requirements was to do it on a batch-by-batch basis. Thus not a big bang.
I decided to write a PowerShell script and use a .csv file as the input. The results should be written to a log file.

The issue is that you are logged on with an account name that has more than 8 characters. There are two possible solutions:
- create an account name that has 8 characters or less… Make sure the newly created account name is a member of the local group administrators.
- create C:\TEMP and assign the environment variable %TEMP% to it.

You might have had this earlier: editing an application in SCCM 2012, the SCCM console crashes. And when you want to continue, you get the error: The following objects are not available and wil not be edited.
In this article, I will describe 2 solutions.
