Add multiple user accounts at one time

By jimmy ·
I am looking for a method or tool/program to add multiple users at the same time, as opposed to creating accounts individually. I have not looked into this in the past, but I now have 2 different people that have asked me this question in the last 24 hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am needing to have an answer by 8 am central time Monday morning. (Nothing like a deadline that blows the weekend for you.)

Add multiple user accounts at one time

by Joseph Moore In reply to Add multiple user account ...

Well, how about running the NET USER command to make the users, and put this in a BAT file.
For example, to add user TOM with a password of "password", and to add this to your Windows domain, you would run the following line on a Domain Controller:

NET USER TOM password /DOMAIN /ADD

Now, say you want to add several users. You could just put multiple NET USER commands in the same BAT file. For example, a file could look like this:


NET USER TOM password /DOMAIN /ADD
NET USER BOB password /DOMAIN /ADD
NET USER JIM password /DOMAIN /ADD
NET USER KIM password /DOMAIN /ADD

Save the file as NEWUSER.BAT and there you go! You could then copy this file, and paste it onto a domain controller, then double-click it and voila! Multiple users added at once!

hope this helps

There is a toll by flo computer systems that can help you. Check out www.flocs.com or just search for flocs using any appropriate search engine. I have not used this tool before. My prefered method is using a batch file with th ecommand net user.
Good Luck

I tend to use CSVDE.EXE tool to import multiple AD objects. It?s a bit long winded to start with but once you have exported a few objects to a CSV file and then used that export as an import template it?s easy. You can also prestage your computers using this too!

Microsoft has some useful KB articles on the minimum requirements for object properties that must be included.
