Autmation of Active Directory Entries/Updates

Posted on 2006-06-06

I'd like some advice on the best way to go about Automating the following tasks:

1.  Handling New Employees
2.  Updating Active Directory Entries for Existing Employees

We've just created a new database system for employees.  Since the information that goes into the system has to be entered in part into Active Directory as well, I was wondering if there are any tools, utilities or scripts that can automate these processes.

For all existing employees we need to fill out the information on the General and Organization tab in Active Directory.  For all new employees it would be great if we could find/write a script to create the account on the domain controller, grant the required permissions, add the user to the appropriate OU somehow utilizing the information that has to be entered into the employee database or vice versa.

Any suggestions?
