Add user (NT 40)


I'm trying to add new users on NT 40 with a Win32 program which is executed by the  administrator. Using NetUserAdd I get a new user which belongs to no group. After that I can't add a group to this new user. Either NetGroupAddUser or NetUserSetGroups return NERR_GroupNotFound. Calls to NetQueryDisplayInformation or NetGroupEnum return only one group with the name = "Kein" (this is "No") and comment = "Gewöhnlicher Benutzer" (this is "Common User") (it is a german system). Wher are my groups and how can I add one to my new user?

Thanks, Lutz Wiggershaus

NetGroupAddUser is for domains, NetLocalGroupAddMembers is local accounts.
If you are running in a domain, note that you must specify the PDC name as the servername.

NetLocalGroupAddMembers has the following declaration:

NET_API_STATUS NetLocalGroupAddMembers(
  LPWSTR servername,      
  LPWSTR LocalGroupName,  
  DWORD level,            
  LPBYTE buf,            
  DWORD membercount      
);
 
Parameters:
servername
