How do you export SIMS users into AD?
Interested to see how people integrate new pupils and staff in SIMS with Active Directory accounts.
We currently export a csv file from SIMS with data of new pupils, we then modify the csv file using concatenate formula to create username (year joined, form class letter, first initial and surname i.e. 10AJDavies) and set password to same as username. Using this csv file we import the users into AD using RM Management console.
But we are planning on moving away from RM and going vanilla so will be doing something similar with a csv file and bulk importing users into AD. Just wondering how others do it - i know some people are able to export SIMS data directly into AD without use of csv files? ive also seen this site Integrate Moodle, LDAP and SIMS.net - MoodleDocs but seems to incorporate moodle which at this point i dont want do.
