An experienced AD administrator uses the PowerShell cmdLets „Get-ADUser“ and „Set-ADUser“ for many automated processes in the domain.
If you want to change Linux attributes gidNumber, uid and uidnumber via PowerShell you will recognize that it is not possible by adding a parameter. At least it is not possible with the cmdlet New-ADUser or Set-ADUser. But you can workaround this problem with the parameters -add, -replace, -clear and -remove that enables to set these attributes.
Use the PowerShell Cmdlet Set-ADUser to change user attributes in Active Directory. With Set-ADUser you can: – Change attributes of a single user – Change attributes of several prefiltered users – Bulk Change attributes with a CSV file
