Nearly ready to run my vb script. I needs a lot of tidying up but its pretty functional. I used the win32 version of chown and xcacls.vbs in it as well.
It reads a text file of names.
Splits them into Firstname surname.
Generates a username in the format we use eg smith.a
Checks to see if it exists in AD already. If it does it will try smith.an and so on. Ps I dont like the naming convention but im stuck with it.
Create the user.
Set temp password.
Flag it for being changed on first log on.
Creates home directory
Set NTFS persmissions
Change ownership to the user (so quotas work properly)
Ps anyone know how to do includes in VB script it doesnt seem to be as simple as
We bought a programme called AD Infinitum to add all of our users, but it cost a whopping £200 8O I was then talking about this to a 10th year VB guru and he said he would try to make a programme to do that. The whizzkid knocked up a rough version to do that year's imports! Using a SIMS (or any) .csv file. It fills in all fields you could ask for as well as creating usernames following any desired format. It creates home folders and sorts out permissions etc.
A year later he had got his head around a VB.net and did version 2 with a much improved GUI. We said we would advertise it for him to make a bit of cash (about £60 per copy). He has now just left year 11 but will be coming back in 6th form.
I think i should suggest to him to make this a free download/open source product to boost his profile. What do you all think? It would definately help all you techies out there.
Much like my batch scriptOriginally Posted by ChrisH
um....dont you have to put brackets or "'s around the file you want to include (like php programming?)Ps anyone know how to do includes in VB script it doesnt seem to be as simple as
Don't know vbs i'm afraid [any good sites on where to learn it?]
Indeed. £60 is too steep as you can pick up tools for £19 to do this. A free tool would be ideal though to raise his profile, especially as if it spreads far and wide, so will his name and reputation.Originally Posted by thom
Yup, stick the GPL on it and Sourceforge will host it.
When he does disappear off to uni you can keep his software working too.
I'm surprised no-one has mentioned CSVDE, it's included with Windows 2000 Server and Server 2003. It's what I use.
The easiest way to get the hang of it is to use it to export your AD into a .csv file, then you can see the format required.
Once the users are created, all I have to do is add them to groups. Server 2003 creates the home folders and profile folder with the correct NTFS permisions automatically.
If anyone wants detailed info, just ask. But it will take me a while to create it.
