Batch file to get users name from a nt login name


There is a command you can use "net user" I belive which will able you to type in a username "tlewis" and it will give you the results to show your full username "terry lewis"

I need to have C:\batch\usernames.txt  and the batch file runs and exports to C:\batch\output.txt.

Does anyone have the script that does this.

How about a vbscript?
Name it FindUsers.vbs or something similar...
SourceFile = "C:\batch\usernames.txt"
OutputFile = "C:\batch\output.txt"
LDAPDomain = "LDAP://DC=Domain,DC=com"
Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objOut : Set objOut = objFSO.CreateTextFile(OutputFile)
arrUsers = Split(objFSO.OpenTextFile(SourceFile).ReadAll, vbNewLine)
Dim conn : Set conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Dim cmd : Set cmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
conn.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
conn.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = conn
cmd.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
cmd.Properties("SearchScope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE
For Each UserName in arrUsers
  cmd.CommandText = "SELECT givenName, sn FROM '" & LDAPDomain & "' WHERE objectCategory = 'user' AND SAMAccountName = '" & UserName &  "'"
  Dim objRS : Set objRS = cmd.Execute
  Do Until objRS.EOF
    strFullName = objRS.Fields(0) & " " & objRS.Fields(1)
    objOut.WriteLine UserName & vbTab & strFullName
