    Some quick opinions needed

    I'm just doing a little app to replicate AD users and computers, show all the info of a selected user etc.
    just after things that i could add to it that people use AD users and computers for.

    so far ive got reset password, enable/disable account. i know there's not much else that can be done but any ideas what else i could add would be handy


    cheers

    Regualr functions:
    * Add/remove exchange mailboxes
    * Add/remove group membership
    * Copy users (in order to create new ones)

    I also have a couple of addons that allow me to:
    * Run gpupdate
    * Startup/Shutdown/Restart PCs

    Also if you could launch VNC/Remote Desktop as well, that'd be useful.

    Maybe something I should think about. This version I have right now deals just with user accounts. I know it can be changed to include computers and such, so I'll bear it in mind for the next version

    Geoff: I should be able to do that for the next version yeah.
    Basically all it does is show three windows. First window shows your AD layout, you select an OU and it loads whats inside in the second window. You select a user (or computer soon) and it will load info in the third window.

    It was just really for me to use on machines I haven't got adminpak installed. Saves terminal services or vnc to one that has. I'll put the first version up on here if I can get it working properly.

    I just deploy the admin pack and support tools via GP. I'm lazy.

    I just don't fancy any student machine I'm working on having a sniff of admin tools, no matter what access rights they have :P

    @MK-2: You have to delegate the permissions anyway so deploying adminpak isn't too much of a problem.

    Re: Some quick opinions needed

    I'm paranoid though

    Think I'll post up the beta version of me tool in a min just to see if it works on other peoples domains, as it's only ever been tested on this one
