Can anyone recommend a bulk user creation tool or powershell script that can create active directory users & exchange 2010 mailboxes?
I would like to be able to do the following:
Create AD users & mailboxes from a CSV script
Check and deal with duplicate users
Set profile path
Add to groups
Set login script path
Create home dir & permissions
Many Thanks in advance.
check out wisesoft
Thanks, I will check those out.
To bulk create users with Wisesoft Account Management Spreadsheet looks great. Apart from it does not support Exchange 2010 only 2003
We've used the Wisesoft Spreadsheet for a few years and never had any issues.

1. If you break each one day, write a script and do it for yourself. In particular for Exch and AD, powershell can do all of that.
Has anyone successfully used the Wisesoft Spreadsheet with exchange 2010?
Looks like Powershell is the official way of doing it. There is plenty of Powershell scripts that point to csv files to create bulk users but nothing complete i.e. sets up mailbox permissions, sets profiles path, group memberships etc.
AD bulk users is quite cheap starting at about £60 but we still have some issues with handling duplicates so we have not committed to buying that yet.
XiaAutomation just seems expensive at £500 so we have not looked at that yet.
We have in the past tried using an old program we used with XP & Exchange 2003 which created legacy exchange mailboxes and then used a power script to convert them but it just seems messy way of doing it.
I may try simply mixture of Powershell scripts, batch file to set up NTFS security on mailboxes and ADModify to do the rest.
I have a xls that has a list of there last name and forename
also has a seperate txt file with a massive list of random passwords
It has 1 VBS script that basically takes a set number from the VBS e.g. 11
Then adds the lastname from COL1 and the front initial from COL2 from the forename so it looks like this 11taylorp
it then adds the user to AD in a set OU
And then at the end exports the userlist into a XLS for us to print out
I added my year 7's in 10 mins . I did have to manually add there exchange accounts but with 2003 ( and with exchange installed on the DC) i can select them all and its one click of a button.
