Creating and Managing User Accounts

User creation and management in Windows 2000 is accomplished through the use of the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in. It is also possible to automate the creation and management of user accounts through the use of Active Directory Services Interface (ADSI) and Windows Scripting Host. ADSI can be used in scripting languages such as VB script or Java Script, or in full programming languages such as Visual Basic or Visual C++. The Resource Kit has a number of ADSI script samples that you can both use and adapt.

Creating a user account is usually done through the MMC snap-in. This populates only a very basic subset of attributes with data. However, after creating the account, you can edit its properties to add data to other attributes. You can also create a user account using an ADSI script.
