HELP ! Urgent Mass Account Creation in a Domain within a specific OU

Hello,

I need a powershel Script for a mass user account creation.
Below are the specification


1- Account will be created in a Domain within a specific OU
Path = OU=Test,OU=Users,DC=Genactic,DC=sys

2- The Login accounts should be from
TCA0008000 to TCA0009999

3- First Name = Agency Sales Notebook (Same First Name For all accounts)

4- Last Name = CLL (Same Last Name For all accounts)

5- Email = cll_tca@salesentreprise.net (Same email For all accounts)

6- Passwords = None or any passwords (The account are not inteaded for login purposes)

7- The account should be disabled when created

8- Password Never Expired

9- Account never expired

10- A log file to check the account creation.

I would like to be able to modify the domain, the OU path, the  first and last name and the email in order to run the script for an other domain with different input.

Thank You !

I like David's script too. But I had to modify it because it would not have not created the users with the "-WhatIf" parameter present.

Also, I modified to create users TCA0008000 to TCA0009999 (based on your example) instead of TCA00008000 to TCA00009999--with one extra zero.

And I removed the unnecessary $name variable because it is redundant to the $username variable.

I added the GivenName parameter for each users based on your criteria and removed SamAccountName because it is based on the Name parameter and added without specifying explicitly.

Lastly, I added a section that makes the variables easy to locate and update based on whatever environment they need to be changed for.

Therefore, I suppose you want something like this with basic output logged of the values you need set...

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

$MYPASSWORD = Read-Host "Enter Password" -AsSecureString

[int] $counter = 8000

do {

     #SET VARIABLES
     $USERNAME = "TCA000"+ $counter.tostring()
     $USERPRINCIPALNAME = $USERNAME + "@Genactic.sys"
     $DISPLAYNAME = "Agency Sales Notebook CLL"
     $FIRSTNAME = "Agency Sales Notebook"
     $LASTNAME = "CLL"
     $OUPATH = "OU=Test,OU=Users,DC=Genactic,DC=sys"
     $EMAILADDRESS = "cll_tca@salesentreprise.net"

     #CREATE USERS
     New-ADUser -Name $USERNAME -UserPrincipalName $USERPRINCIPALNAME -DisplayName $DISPLAYNAME -GivenName $FIRSTNAME -Surname $LASTNAME -Path $OUPATH -Email $EMAILADDRESS -AccountPassword $MYPASSWORD -PasswordNeverExpires $True -Enabled $False

     #LOG OF CREATED USERS
     Get-ADUser -Identity $USERNAME -Properties EmailAddress,DisplayName,PasswordNeverExpires,Enabled | Select-Object Name,GivenName,Surname,DisplayName,EmailAddress,DistinguishedName,SamAccountName,UserPrincipalName,PasswordNeverExpires,Enabled | Out-file "NewUserResults.txt" -Append

     $counter++

} while ($counter -le 9999)

At a basic level, I feel you should start with a CSV file for all your users that you need created.  Something similar to this.  The Name field has to be defined and unique across all accounts, and ideally, the UPN should be defined as well...

Name,UserPrincipalName
TCA0008000,TCA0008000@domain.local
TCA0008001,TCA0008001@domain.local
TCA0008002,TCA0008002@domain.local
TCA0008003,TCA0008003@domain.local

Open in new window



Then, use a script similar to this to create the users with your specified criteria...

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

$MyPassword = Read-Host "Enter Password" -AsSecureString

Import-Csv "C:\Tools\Scripts\MyNewUsers.csv" | ForEach-Object { 

     New-ADUser -Name $_.Name -SamAccountName $_.Name -UserPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName -DisplayName "Agency Sales Notebook CLL" -Surname "CLL" -Path "OU=Users,OU=Test,DC=d2,DC=local" -Email "cll_tca@salesentreprise.net" -AccountPassword $MyPassword -PasswordNeverExpires $True -Enabled $False

}

Open in new window



Hope that helps.  Let me know.

Run the below using Exchange power Shell.  Key in all users' details in the attached csv file.

[PS] C:\>Import-CSV "C:\Users\yourpath\Downloads\userlist.csv" | foreach {new-mailbox -Name $_.DisplayName -FirstName $_.Firstname -LastName $_.Lastname -DisplayName $_.DisplayName -Alias $_.alias  -Database $_.Database -password (ConvertTo-SecureString $_.password -AsPlainText -force) -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $true -UserPrincipalName $_.UPN -OrganizationalUnit $_.OrganizationalUnit}
