Just had a flyer from PNLTools who now have a connector for UMRA (User Management Resource Administrator. ....... a visual scripting tool) which links SIMS/CMIS to AD.
When an entry is added to SIMS/CMIS, an AD user object along with a home directory, share permissions, Exchange mailbox, group memberships etc. are automatically created in Active Directory.
Anyone else tried this? I note that a demo is available.
