I recently ran into a little problem where I had installed Server 2008 Standard Edition and passed the server off to the Middleware guys to do their thing. I later found out that the license for this server was for Enterprise Edition, but much of the work had already been done from a middleware perspective. This led me to wonder if it was possible to change the edition of Windows Server after installing. The answer is a resounding “YES!” and it’s actually quite simple. Check out the steps below:
Here’s a fun little script I worked on recently. Essentially, what it does is accept an input of a text file holding one username on each line and create a new folder in a specified path that only that user has rights to for each user in the input file. The use case for this would be if you were trying to move users’ profile folders to new shared drive on the network, or perhaps they didn’t exist and you need to create them from scratch. Have a look – enjoy!
