What you can do with Uimport is creating, removing and updating users.

To use uimport, you need to make two text files (with DOS editor for exampel).

THE FIRST FILE:
The first file (Control file), tells uimport about the actions you want to make.
This file has two segments.
The first segment is Import Control with tells Uimport about chaging the defaults. If want to change users info, you need to write in the Import Control - Replace Value.

The second segment is Fields. In this part you tell Uimport the properties you want to include (name, last name, password, account disabled etc.)

For Example, if you want to change with Uimport the password of user called Saar the control file will look like this:

Import Control
   Replace Value=Y
Fields
   Name
   Password

(you must use spaces where I used).

The second text file Uimport use is called Data File, and it says the value for the fields in the first file. The data has to be according to the fields you used in the Control file (first file).

For exampel - if I want to change the password of user called Saar to blablabla the data file will look like:

saar,blablabla

you can change many users passwords: If I want to change Saar's password to blablabla and Avi's password to xxx then the Data file will look like:

saar,blablbla
avi,xxx

(There is no need to change the Control file)



***To find which properties you can use for the Fields type:
Uimport /? attr


Hope I helped you,
Saar
