Hello Bro
Let me know if this works for u .....................


set objParent = GetObject("LDAP://<ParentDN>")
set objUser   = objParent.Create("user", "cn=<UserName>") ' e.g. joes
objUser.Put "sAMAccountName", "<UserName>"   ' e.g. joes
objUser.Put "userPrincipalName", "<UserUPN>" ' e.g.
objUser.Put "givenName", "<UserFirstName>"   ' e.g. Joe
objUser.Put "sn", "<UserLastName>"           ' e.g. Smith
objUser.Put "displayName", "<UserFirstName> <UserLastName>" ' e.g. Joe Smith

' CORRECTION: If you don't set userAccountControl, then by default
'             the value of 514 (normal account + disabled) will be set for it.
'             In this instance by setting it to 512, the account will not
'             be disabled, and if you have password complexity enabled in
'             your forest, the script will fail because a password was not
'             set prior to the account being enabled.  The solution is to
'             not set userAccountControl here.
' objUser.Put "userAccountControl", ADS_UF_NORMAL_ACCOUNT

objUser.AccountDisabled = FALSE

Enjoy ..........

Are you trying to automate adding a bunch of users at one time?  This will do one at a time ...

For a batch file, you could use the "net user" and "net group" commands to accomplish your task.  For example, if you want to use it to set up the 3 fields you entered above (with an initial default password of "password"), you could save the following as "userscript.bat":

@echo off
net user %2 password /add /fullname:%1
net group IT %2 /add

Then just run it like:
userscript "Joji Joseph" joji IT
