Hello mel7_71,

You mean how do I create a new user on my domain?



1 On the domain controller start > run > dsa.msc {enter}
2 Right click the users container (or an OU where you want to create the user) Select New User
3 Follow the onscreen prompts

Regards,

PeteLong

mel7_71,
Creating user accounts is a snap with Windows Server 2003 <http://www.lockergnome.com/windows/2005/08/12/create-a-new-user-account-in-server-2003/>. The New Object - User wizard walks you through the task. Within Active Directory Users and Computers <http://www.lockergnome.com/windows/2005/08/12/create-a-new-user-account-in-server-2003/>, simply right click the OU or container in which you want to create the account, point to New and click User. This brings up the New Object - User wizard.
The exact procedure for creating a new user account is outlined below:
Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and click Active Directory Users and Computers.
Expand your domain within the right pane of the snap-in.
Right click the organizational unit in which you want to create the new user account, point to New and click User.
In the New Object - User window type in the first and last name of the user (the Full name field is automatically filled in).
Type the User logon name. Select the UPN suffix from the drop-down list that will be appended to the logon name. The pre-windows 2000 name is automatically generated. Click Next.
Type in a password for the user account and select any password options. Click Next.
Click Finish.

Domain policy is applied on OU level. You should Link your GPO to the OU that contains the user you want to apply the policy on his account. If you want to apply this policy only on a specific user, then you have to filter this GPO [ security filtering using GPMC]

When you create a domain user then the default domain policy will be applied on this account. If these is another policy that linked to another OU, then you have to move this account [ right click > move] to the target OU that the new policy is applied on it.
