hi,

im trying to write a program which will give an interface for creating a users in our windows 2000 domain.
our domain also holds a NIS server on the DC by using "SFU 3.5" which provides centrat location for managing users also for our Unix Servers.

the problem is how do i know which UID should i give to the user im creating?

when you do it through the GUI the UID just appears , and i have no idea how it is being generated.

the msSFU30UidNumber is the property that i have to assing the UID to.

the piece of the code is standard:
objUser.SetInfo
'SFU Attributes
objUser.Put "syncNisDomain","win"
objUser.Put "msSFU30NisDomain","win"
objUser.Put "msSFU30GidNumber", GID
objUser.Put "msSFU30UidNumber", UID
objUser.Put "msSFU30LoginShell","/bin/bash"
objUser.Put "msSFU30HomeDirectory","/projecto/" & strUserID
objUser.Put "msSFU30Name", strUserID
' Commit again
objUser.SetInfo


Thanks for the help,

i found a file called passwd.byuid
that file holds all the users sorted by uid , so all i have to look is at the last line of the file
