Web-Based Account Creation

Good Morning,  I am trying to find a way/product that will allow a secretary to enter new user information from a web-page.  I would prefer she not have direct access to the server.  We do not need a lot of reporting features as she is only going to be entering data as walk-ins occur.  

Ideally something that would allow here to enter name, select group membership via drop-down and have the application create the user and home folder.

Forgive the term but I am trying to dumb-down user creation so it does not tie up one of my techs.

Thank you for suggestios.

Secure is not a problem. What do you think IISPASSWD does?

yes, windows Integrated authentication.

Don't use impersonation and ensure the user has on the minimum permissions required.

Hi,

You can do this simply with .NET using System.Directorie Services.  Essentially, create a webpage withwill perform against Active Directory.

Indeed I would hope for some level of authentication before the secretary can add a user.
