We use a script to add users to our domain.
In the User Properties - Organization - Manager - Name field, I want to add the users' manager.
I tried setting the UserManager variable and adding the following line to the script
objuser2.Put "manager",UserManager
The script does not work.

Question: Is it possible to populate the User Properties - Organization - Manager - Name Field?

If it is, what is the AD Variable name for that field?

Thanks in advance

What's in "UserManager"?
This will need to be the full path to the manager's CN.

Iow, you can't use:

objUser.Put "manager", "Tom Jones"

You'll need to use something like
objUser.Put "manager", "CN=JonesT, OU=Management,dc=company,dc=com"
