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

Are you running in a domain or on a local server?
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
Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string containing the name of the remote server on which the function is to execute. A NULL pointer or string specifies the local computer.

LocalGroupName
Pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string containing the name of the local group to which the specified users or global groups will be added.

level
Specifies one of the following values to set the level of information provided. Value Meaning
0 The buf parameter points to an array of LOCALGROUP_MEMBERS_INFO_0 structures.
3 The buf parameter points to an array of LOCALGROUP_MEMBERS_INFO_3 structures.

buf
Pointer to a buffer containing the data for the new members.

membercount
Specifies the number of entries in the buffer pointed to by the buf parameter.
