Script to add a domain user with special credentials

I am looking for a script already a while now but nobody had a decent solution :)

This script basicially has a gui which asks for the following :

- Desired Username
- dropdown menu for group selection (if possible also OUs)

when selections have been made, the script creates a user in the desired group, creates a default password which needs to be changed upon login, AND creates a folder via UNC path on another server and sets certain permissions. When done, you can either create new user or close the application.

I already asked certain programmer, but nobody seems to be able to help me out there ...

Any kind of help is highly appreciated ....

Oh, IIS is not installed on any server in our network ....

One simple solution (for as far as i'm aware).. It cannot be done.. If you would like to do this, i would suggest buying a software tool like NetIQ DRA (depends on how much money you would like to spend) and this will ease down administration considerably..

But just out of curiosity, why do you need somthing like this??

Every user in our network requires a home drive which is mapped from an EVA ... basicially their email inbox (.pst) is located on that drive.
Unfortunately a lot of people in our IT departmemnt forgetting either creating those drives or something else etc. etc. which causes sometimes a bit trouble when Outlook suddenly does not open etc. etc.

And software, or at least the price, doesn't matter .. as long as it works for us :) I will check the link to see what it is and how usefull it would be ..


We also have somewhat of the same problem.. We have IT staff that has less privileges and DRA is a perfect tool to get the job one without giving your users more permissions than absolutely necesarry.

Also, NETIq is on off the market leaders is administrative tools (the've also created MOM for Microsoft.. ;))

I am looking forward to test it .. I am currently downloading the trial but if this tool is good, I am sure I get an approval for that :)

Thanks so far, I'll keep you posted :)

Looks nice, but it still requires IIS which I cannot use ..
