Is there a way to change the default for "Unix Attributes" that are populated in AD.  I would like to change the default login shell to be /bin/bash instead of /bin/sh by default when new users are created.

I am not sure that yuo can do that. But, one way is to create a 'clone' account with all the default settings and groups ready, and when you create a new account, you just copy the clone account instead with all the appropriate settings already done for you.

There is a tool called ADSI Editor you may try.
BUT... how do you create the accounts? Do you use Windows mechanisms or connect from Linux with an AD API?

Hey..

the accounts are created simply using Active Directory (New > User > fill in info).
