Create a new account on Notes Client programatically

Hi
we have to configure almost 300 new users accounts in different places of the country.
Doing that one by one would be a pain in the...
Is it possible to create an agent that does it for us? or maybe a button in a mail sent to already setted user? (they would share same client maybe be by different Location for each one)
We use ID Vault, so user.id would be retrieved in that way.

Thanks in advance and best regards

If it's 300 NEW users, you can use a file with account data and have it processed by the Admin client. See the Admin help db for a complete explanation.

On the other hand, if you have to recertify 300 users... dunno...

thanks  Sjef.
Maybe i wasn't clear enought.
The user are alredy created and their person document are in corporate names db, and their databases are located in the server.
What i need to do is configure each account on each client for each user.
cheers

Ah, I understand.

Well, I'm a little out of my comfort zone here, but I guess this page describes more or less what can be done:

thanks again Sjef
I already saw that link.
It assumes that it is a new instalation which, unfortunatelly is not the case here.
You see, there are already other accounts created on Desktop. They share Lotus Application throught locations.
I would think in switch locations to change users... but it is a guess

Couple of questions...

1. Are the clients using their own Windows login or multiple Notes users with one Windows User
2. Are the clients installed in multi-user mode (good) with files in %appdata%\local\ibm\notes\data etc. or under c:\program files(x86).... (bad!)

I always install in multi-user mode since Windows 7 came in and then can configure the install with default servername, pickup the user's ad login name (using %username% as the default username and together with ID vault and roaming users all they can potentially need to do is enter their password on a new machine / profile and press Next.

So can you explain how you would do one manually please at the moment?

well, that was the approach that we thought solve our problem.
You see, we have no full access to our own servers due to a limitations in Company Policy (It is overseas).
We need to allow web users to receive encrypted messages and they were not decryted due to those limitations.
Well, we thought since we cannot set Certificates we would need to create full accounts on every machine on every Clinic (90 clinics/3-5 users per clinic)
Afortunately,  one of Lan IT guys found a solution and now, mails are decryted without configure each one, just sending login data to administrative mail of each clinic.
Cheers

PD, sorry for my english, i hope i was clear enought
