I have  a .csv file named AddUsers.csv containing the following user details.

Name,GivenName,SurName,Department
Binayak,cbinayak,Chakraborty,IT
Ajit,jajit,Jha,Support

Now I want to add these users using PowerShell by importing AddUsers.csv file into Active Directory Users and Computers.

Need your help for the exact command to add these users in the CSV file using PowerShell.

Import-Csv AddUsers.csv |
Foreach{New-QADUser -Name $_.name -FirstName $_.First -LastName $_.Last -UserPassword 'P@ssword'}

New-QADUser cmdlet is not windows PowerShell delivered cmdlet, its a quest AD tools you have to download and Install to work with this cmdlet. This is a simple cmmand, with no Organization Unit, no OU etc. Password is also in plain text.
