Hi
I want to add some number of users to my domain, from command prompt. I know that I can simply use:
net user user_name password /ADD
to perfrom the job, but the problem is, this command will add the users to "Users" folder in the domain, while I want to add the users to a previously created "Organizational Unit".
Is there a way to add users to an Organizational Unit, from command prompt? Or is there a way to move a user from one Organizational Unit to other, from the command prompt?
Thanks in advance

Hello Huji,

Try this article, it would let you add users to a particular OU from command prompt using the command dsadd utility, I am assuming you are using Windows 2003 , if this is not the case please let me know what OS

If you are running a Windows 2000 server as a DC, you should have a look at the following URL. It gives step by step instruction on how to create a new user in an OU using the LDIF command from a command line:
