I use this for our 2003 2008 servers but you will have to try it and see if it works for 2012 AD Infinitum Active Directory network administration multiple user manager tool for Windows 2000 and NT4
I used to use Active User Manager to import new users when I'm doing a bulk import before upgrading to 2K12 domain/servers. It doesn't seem to be compatible with the new OS. Anyone have a tool that is?
Given microsoft's changes to try and push powershell / gui-less servers etc, it's probably worth spending a bit of time learning it. I've spent last few months on and off porting some old c# code (that used to create AD users etc) to powershell.
The New-AdUser cmdlet, generates an AD user, we use similar to the below for parent accounts:
New-ADUser -Name $username -SamAccountName $username -GivenName $forename -Surname $surname -DisplayName $display -Path $path -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString $password -AsPlainText -force) -PasswordNeverExpires $True -Enabled $true -Description $id -UserPrincipalName $upn
For students/staff etc, you'd probably want to add some additional options i.e. home directory
Following adds a user to a group:
Add-ADGroupMember $group $username
AUM works for me on 2k12 domain when run on Windows 7.
