Nope, you would need to provide the full path to the OU - this is unavoidable if you want the nice quick way to create the user. If you're to search for the OU then you really only have two options: ADODB (an SQL type query using ADO) or Recursion.

Anyway, I'll describe both of these in your other thread so hopefully it will become clear from that.

Lots of questions ;)


Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=SomeOU," & objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext"))

objOU.Create("user", "CN=User Name")

After that you can set user properties as you see fit followed by "objUser.SetInfo".

Will this work if the OU is three or four OU's deep?
Also How do i set the strDomain String for userPrincipalName if im trying to Determine the Domain.

strOU = "ounamehere"
strUserID = "usernamehere"

Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://" & strOU & ," & objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext"))

Set objUser = objOU.Create("user", "CN=" & strUserID)
    objUser.Put "samAccountName", strUserID
    objUser.Put "userPrincipalName", strUserID & strDomain
    objUser.Put "sn", strSurname
    objUser.Put "givenName", strFirstName
    objUser.Put "displayName", strFirstname & " " & strSurname
    objuser.Put "description", "Student User - " & strGroup
    objUser.SetInfo
