Special characters in distinguished names

Commas within a CN must be escaped with the backslash \ character
e.g. "CN=Company\, Inc.,CN=Users,DC=ss64,DC=com"

Backslashes must also be escaped with a backslash
for example, "CN=Sales\\ Latin America,OU=Distribution Lists,DC=ss64,DC=com"

If any value contains spaces, use quotation marks:
e.g. "CN=John Smith,CN=Users,DC=SS64,DC=com"

Redirection
You can pipe results from DSQUERY into DSGet in order to view multiple objects. If the DN contains any commas or backslashes you will need to redirect to a file first and add the escape characters as above.

Special Tokens
The token $username$ (case insensitive) may be used to place the SAM account name.
Entering * as a password will cause DSMOD to prompt for the new password.

For any DS command you can enter multiple values separated by spaces.
e.g. to modify several user accounts at once just supply a list of the distinguished names separated with spaces.
