I am trying to create a simple user account with vbscripting, yet I can not because of the following error. Can someone pls show me why the error occurs with Setinfo()?

$objUser=[ADSI]"LDAP://OU=People,DC=pit,DC=com,DC=au"
$objUser=$objOU.Create("user","CN=Scott Mitchell")
$objUser.Put("sAMAccountName","Scott Mitchell")
$objUser.SetInfo()

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Documents> .\newusers.ps1

Can you confirm you have:
1. Sufficient permissions to create account in that OU.
2. The Samaccountname and user are unique and have not already been created.

Actually looking at it I have noticed the first line appears to be incorrect as it should define the OU for the user object to be create in.

$objOU=[ADSI]"LDAP://OU=People,DC=pit,DC=com,DC=au"

$objUser=$objOU.Create("user","CN=Scott Mitchell")
$objUser.Put("sAMAccountName","Scott Mitchell")
$objUser.SetInfo()
