How to rename an Active Directory Domain user account

External Resources

Renaming a user account is convenient when an employee is replaced by another employee. A user account is not simply a name and password; it is also a set of permissions and group memberships and therefore when you rename a user account, verify all the user object's attributes.

1) To rename an Active Directory Domain user account, open the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in, right click the user object and select "Rename" from the context menu.

(To open Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in (DSA.MSC), select Start > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers or type DSA.MSC in the run dialog box and hit enter)
