Hi All,

I've been asked to ad 1,000 user to active directory, setting (where possible);

* username
* password
* email
* Salutation (mr/mrs/miss)
* first name
* last name
* Telephone
* Description
* add to a group called "external_users"

in the following OU;

> ad.local > External > Users


Does anyone know of an easy way to do this, a single command line would be fine?

Here's another great example on how to do it~:

Do you have a list of all first and last names, or are we talking about "User1, User2.... User1000?

email: Create a mailbox, or just add a visible address based on first name/last name?
