Copying, Moving, and Renaming Objects

Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Scripting Guide

In the management life cycle of Active Directory objects, common tasks not part of the four primary administrative tasks (create, delete, read, and modify) include copying, moving, and renaming. For example, you can copy objects to speed object creation, move objects if you need to delete a container but preserve its contents, and rename objects to comply with new company naming standards.
