First off, let me say, I haven't the foggiest idea what I am doing. I need to create user accounts in AD. Borrowed some lines of code from other posting, but can't figure out where I am going wrong. Can someone please help me from my misery?

Thanks.

Code:


dim $domain, $user, $userName, $fullusername, $userdescription
$username = "jdoe"
$fullusername = "Jane Doe"
$userdescription = "test

$Domain = GetObject("LDAP://cn=Users,dc=something,dc=com")
$user = $Domain.Create("user", "ou=" + $userName)
$user.Put("FullName", $FulluserName)
$user.Put("Description", $userDescription)
;$user.SetInfo

$domain = 0
$user = 0

Get rid of the ";" in front of the "$user.Setinfo".
Apart from that, you mixed up "cn" and "ou" in the 6. and 7. line. They should read:
 Code:

$Domain = GetObject("LDAP://ou=Users,dc=something,dc=com")
$user = $Domain.Create("user", "cn=" + $userName)

You also need(!) to set the SAMaccountname:
 Code:
$User.Put ("sAMAccountName", $username)


That should do it.

You might wanna add:
 Code:
	$user.AccountDisabled = 0
	$user.SetInfo

to unlock the new account, and
 Code:

      $user.SetPassword ($passvariable)
      $user.SetInfo  

to set a password.

Actually, the default user container is CN, not OU.

CN is used for objects and folders, OU is Organizational Unit.
It's weird that your script would work calling the user an OU. It shouln't work at all.

 Code:
$Domain = GetObject("LDAP://ou=Users,dc=something,dc=com")
$user = $Domain.Create("user", "cn=" + $userName)

why do i call the user an OU? The OU is called "USERS".

Well... you may in fact have an OU called users but it does not change the fact that a vanilla out-of-the-box install of AD has a CN called users.

Can someone create a OU with the name Users next to the existing cn named Users?

Maybe i'm missing something, but apart from the qestion about the USERS-OU, in MS-technet the usage of OU and CN (in the context of creating a user) is displayed exactly like i said:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/guide/sas_usr_doig.mspx?mfr=true
So i dont really see the problem.
And yeah, it's correct, my example creates the user in the OU(!) called Users. But as "dc=something,dc=com" indicates, it was just an e x a m p l e.

Having a hard time finding the attributes that I need to create user account. Need the following attribute: Enable Account. Also, can I place users in groups by using memberof attribute? Does anyone know where I can get a complete of attributes that will work with kix and LDAP?

thanks -- dee

Lots of resources... ADSI Scriptomatic, ADSI resuorce kit, VBS script center, etc. all on the web at Microsoft.

No, but this can:
 Code:
Function addtogroup ($adloginname,$adgroupname)
	
	$grouppath = "LDAP://cn="+$adgroupname+",ou=OuLocationOftheGroup,dc=domain,dc=com"
	$userpath = "LDAP://cn="+$adloginname+",ou=OuLocationoftheUser,dc=domain,dc=com"
	 
	$GroupObj = GetObject($grouppath)
	$UserObj = GetObject($userpath)
	
	$GroupObj.add ($UserObj.ADsPath)
	$GroupObj.SetInfo

EndFunction
