But as you can see, it doesn’t have the Remote Desktop Service Profile tab. So how do you batch update this property to a large number of users when needed?

Here is a quick example of using PowerShell to find all users that belong to a specific OU and update them with the new network path for remote desktop service profiles.

$users = Get-ADuser -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test, DC=Test, DC=LOCAL"
$newpath = ''

ForEach ($user in $users){
    $userinfo = [ADSI]"LDAP://$($user.DistinguishedName)"
    $userinfo.psbase.invokeset('TerminalServicesProfilePath', $newpath)
    $userinfo.setinfo()
    $user.name + ' ' + $userinfo.TerminalServicesProfilePath
}

Enjoy.
