Is that what you need something to do? Read a CSV, get the account corresponding to the username and set the storage limits?

Can I see a sample of your input file?

And which quota limit(s) are you wanting to set? Soft, Hard and Warning?

I think we can simplify that considerably... won't be long.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

This kind of thing should do it.

It will pop up 3 boxes asking for each limit in Mb (must be numeric, it should error and die if you try and enter anything other than that).

Then it opens up a text file, currently set at the top as INPUT_FILE. We can have it ask for a name / path if you prefer. The file is expected to be:

username1
username2
username3
etc

Then for each of the users it sets any limit you've set to be greater than 0. If you've set 0 it doesn't do anything with the value. We can change it to unset a limit if you like though.

Const INPUT_FILE = "filename.txt"
 

Function GetObjectDN(strObject, strDomain)

  ' Return Type: String

  '

  ' Returns a Distinguished Name for an Object from it's NT SAM ID.

  ' This will only function for valid object types within an NT Domain structure.
 

  Const ADS_NAME_INITTYPE_GC = 3

  Const ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779 = 1

  Const ADS_NAME_TYPE_NT4 = 3
 

  If strDomain = "" Then

    Dim objNetwork : Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

    strDomain = objNetwork.UserDomain

    Set objNetwork = Nothing

  End If
 

  On Error Resume Next : Err.Clear

  Dim objNameTranslate : Set objNameTranslate = CreateObject("NameTranslate")

  Dim strObjectDN : strObjectDN = objNameTranslate.Get(ADS_NAME_TYPE_1779)
 

  If Err.Number <> 0 Then strObjectDN = ""
