Basically, create a CSV file and use with script.  Here are a couple of references.  The last two, in part, will guide you to creating a CSV file and the users...


Essentially, the CSV file (saved as 'MyNewUsers.csv') and script will look similar to this...

Name,UserPrincipalName,DisplayName,FirstName,LastName,OUPath,EmailAddress
User0,User0@mydomain.local,User 0,User,0,"OU=Test,OU=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=local",user0@mydomain.com
User1,User1@mydomain.local,User 1,User,1,"OU=Test,OU=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=local",user1@mydomain.com
User2,User2@mydomain.local,User 2,User,2,"OU=Test,OU=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=local",user2@mydomain.com
User3,User3@mydomain.local,User 3,User,3,"OU=Test,OU=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=local",user3@mydomain.com

Open in new window


Import-Module ActiveDirectory
$MYPASSWORD = Read-Host "Enter Password" -AsSecureString
Import-Csv "C:\MyNewUsers.csv" | ForEach-Object {
     New-ADUser -Name $_.Name -UserPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName -DisplayName $_.DisplayName -GivenName $_.FirstName -Surname $_.LastName -Path $_.OUPath -Email $_.EmailAddress -AccountPassword $MYPASSWORD -PasswordNeverExpires $False -Enabled $True
}
