Is it possible to import users from an Access Databse into Active Directory in Win Serv 2k3?
Posted on 2004-11-10
We have ordered a server for about 20 computers for the press dpt in a school (Probably about 50 users will use these computers). We created a Microsoft Access Database with everyone's name, login name, temporary password, group they will be in, etc. so we can be organized, and also to be able to send out letters to everyone with their login information with mail merge...We were just going to type all of the users again into active directory when we get the server in, but is there any way to import the users from a database? Also, a little off topic, but we have set up an image that we are going to send to the other computers using ghost, and I've heard from somebody that the computer cannot be on the domain when you image it...Is that true? We just set the computer name to xxxxx and we were just going to go in and change it on each computer as it is imaged...Would there be any problem with this? Even if we just imaged 1-at-a-time and changed it there?
Thank you, Adam
