Select Duplicate Accounts Manually

If you know which accounts you want to merge, you can manually select the accounts you want to merge instead of using Active Directory Account Cleanup Wizard.

Important   When you select accounts to be merged, be aware of the merge operation restrictions involved when you merge accounts in Active Directory.

To select duplicate accounts manually:

  1. On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click Active Directory Cleanup Wizard.
  2. On the Welcome to the Active Directory Account Cleanup Wizard screen, click Next.
  3. On the Identifying Merging Accounts screen, click to clear the Search Entire Directory Or Selected Containers check box, and then click Next.
  4. On the Review Merging Operations screen, click Add.
  5. In the Select Merging Accounts dialog box, select the objects that you want to merge.
  6. Tip   Another way to select accounts is to type the account name in Name, and then click OK. This displays a list of accounts similar to what you type in Name.

  7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all of the merge operations you are adding to the list appear under Merging Accounts.
