Hello,
I am working on a script that is creating a user in AD with certain attributes. It creates fine, tested login in with it but just wondering that the "User logon name" text box is blank along with drop down menu to choose the domain name.
Piece of the user creation code:
$sam = $_."Last Name".ToLower() + $_."First Name".substring(0,1).ToLower()
New-ADUser $sam -AccountPassword $setpass -OtherAttributes @{givenName=$_."First Name";sn=$_."Last Name"; displayName=$_."Last Name" + ", " + $_."First Name"; title=$_."Job Title"; employeeNumber=$_."Clock Number"}

Open in new window

Thanks for your help

I think I got it, I had to add the userPrincipalName attrribute

New-ADUser $sam -AccountPassword $setpass -OtherAttributes @{userPrincipalName=$sam + $domain; givenName=$_."First Name";sn=$_."Last Name"; displayName=$_."Last Name" + ", " + $_."First Name"; title=$_."Job Title"; employeeNumber=$_."Clock Number"}

You are right.. UPN is not auto populated when you use New-ADUser or New-QADUser. You need to specify it while creating the user else it will be null.
