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.

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.

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.
