Creating bulk users in Active directory
Moving away from CC4 this summer and just wondering if anyone has a tool to automate the creation of users, ie create the home folder etc?
ive just got an excel spreasheet that generates usernames etc just copy out data from the last wookbook to notepad save as a batch and run
I use AD Infinitum. You can get it on a trial and it works a dream. Buy it if you like it, then you can use ALL the features
Here is the link http://www.newfawm.com/adi2.htm
Just thinking... as for editing home drives, I usually select all the users in AD, right click, properties, profile, home drive, then put the old \\server\home_drives\%username% jobby in there. Creates all the folders with the usernames etcs.

Have a look at JavelinaSoftware's ADUsers
We created a VB script that reads an export from SIMS and automatically creates any new students for us.
Just updated it to powershell since we going to want it to do some work on the Office365 accounts as well.
Dovestones here as well version 4 looks good and it can run to a schedule as well so as long as you create an output file it will automatically run and create your users.
I wrote a Kix Script at the time.
The idea at the time was the school IT Co-ord just typed in a list of names once a year and pressed add users. As it happens its normally us who do it anyway.
I used to use a product called Salamander at my last school, great product, but not cheap.
In the summer we're having a product called Umra installed which apparently is similar, but again comes with a cost.
We find the wisesoft stuff troublesome and use AD Infinitum now.
