Sample Script for DSADD for Bulk Users

Do you have a sample script for DSADD User? I want to add users to Active
Directory running Windows 2003. I want to add the following attributes
First Name, Last Name, Logon Name, setup a password, users need to change
password after logging in the first time, assign users in a certain groups,
etc. Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional
information.

Thanks.

Debra,
here is a sample:
dsadd user "cn=Larry,ou=Accounts,dc=mcl,dc=com" -fn Larry -ln Fine -pwd
Soup2Nuts -memberof "cn=ThreeStooges,ou=Groups,dc=mcl,dc=com" -mustchpwd yes
You can find more info regarding syntax at
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc731279.aspx - or simply type in
dsadd user /?

Re: Sample Script for DSADD for Bulk Users

Marcin,

Thanks for your prompt response. Is it possible to enter a batch file with
a list of users and attributes and use DSADD to import it to Active
Directory?

Thanks.

Re: Sample Script for DSADD for Bulk Users

If you are able to install 3rd party software then using Powershell and the
free Quest AD cmdlets
(http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx) you can very simply
achieve what you are trying to do.

If you have a csv with the list of new users and their attributes, say
something like:

Name,samAccountName,Office etc
"Fred Bloggs",fbloggs,London
"John Doe",jdoe,Paris

then you can create new accounts for every entry in the csv file bu typing
the below into Powershell.

Import-CSV list.csv | New-QADUser - parentcontainer domain.com/OUname -import


If you need more advanced options I can expand this further

Re: Sample Script for DSADD for Bulk Users

Here is a sample of Dsadd user script that you can create to add users in active directory. I found a video no youtube which showed up the process of doing this. The initial syntax that is used in this is -
Code:
dsadd user <UserDN> [-samid <SAMName>] [-upn <UPN>] [-fn <FirstName>] [-mi <Initial>] [-ln <LastName>] [-display <DisplayName>] [-empid <EmployeeID>] [-pwd {<Password> | *}] [-desc <Description>] [-memberof <Group> ...] [-office <Office>] [-tel <PhoneNumber>] [-email <Email>] [-hometel <HomePhoneNumber>] [-pager <PagerNumber>] [-mobile <CellPhoneNumber>] [-fax <FaxNumber>] [-iptel <IPPhoneNumber>] [-webpg <WebPage>] [-title <Title>] [-dept <Department>] [-company <Company>] [-mgr <Manager>] [-hmdir <HomeDirectory>] [-hmdrv <DriveLetter>:][-profile <ProfilePath>] [-loscr <ScriptPath>] [-mustchpwd {yes | no}] [-canchpwd {yes | no}] [-reversiblepwd {yes | no}] [-pwdneverexpires {yes | no}] [-acctexpires <NumberOfDays>] [-disabled {yes | no}] [{-s <Server> | -d <Domain>}] [-u <UserName>] [-p {<Password> | *}] [-q] [{-uc | -uco | -uci}]. 
Read the syntax carefuly and fill up the required places. You can also use a txt which consist of users seperate in comma three per row. Then add the reference of txf file in dsadd script and done.

Re: Sample Script for DSADD for Bulk Users

Refer to youtube. There are number of scripts that are showed with sample process how to run them. That will be much better. I found a video which showed to create user via dsadd user. The script was simple. What you have to ensure that format of adding up user account and then providing the reference in sysntax properly or else you will end up a error. It cannot be explained properly unless you watch a video which shows how this all works actually.
