Creating Domain user accounts script
Posted on 2004-08-11
I am looking for a VBScript example of how to create a Windows Domain user account from a computer within the domain.
Currently I have a script that was creating a user account in a specifed OU and group but the server (Win2k3) that was running the script was the Domain Controller. With our new network design the domain controller is running on a separate server and the computer running the script is simply a member of the domain. The domain controller is using Active Directory and the server that will be running the script does not. The server executing the script is running an application that requires to create new user accounts within the domain. The scripting server is and scripts will be executed by the Domain Controller Administrator account as that is login i use.
I am not a skilled VB programmer but can work with a script to include command line supplied arguments to replace values for DOMAIN, OU, GROUP, PASSWORD. The user account password should never expire.
