Streamlining a User's Last Name Change

By whollowell ·
I have a user that is getting married over the weekend, thus of course changing her last name. I want to be able to change her logon to the new name without her losing her profile settings and e-mail. I am operating in a Windows 2000 Active Directory environment and running Exchange 2000.

In A/D you can modify the users login ID and display name. Simply go into the users account and change the Login Name from (OldID) to (NewID). Also rename the A/D display name. Right click on the user and rename. Simply type in her new last name. Also, I would recommend changing her e-mail address as well. I'd setup a new Primary e-mail address and assign this to her as well, and you can keep the old one too as a regular SMTP address in case someone sends her e-mails to her maiden named e-mail address.

Heres some more info...

A/D User tabs needed for changes:

Tabs (for changing login ID)

E-Mail Addresses (for adding new E-mail and setting as primary for user while keeping old maiden named one for secondary)

Once you save this information, go back to the container where the user resides in A/D and right click on her name. You can then rename her display name to her new married name.

Sorry, it's Friday and I'm having a brain fart. the "Account" tab is where the userid resides. Not "Tabs" as previously commented.

Couldn't resist that one. It's memorial weekend and "we" get to do lots of maintenance while the users are off at the beach, mountains, desert, Bahamas, where ever having fun.

Griz has it in spades
