  • Export/Import of Large Number of Users

    I need to import a large number of users (6000 approx) into an NT domain. I've looked at the ADDUSERS.EXE NT Resource Kit utility which will do what I want however it does not handle all the User Manager fields, in particular the Account Expires field.

    Can Hyena be used to import a CSV file with all the usernames plus any other User Manager field? These are the fields I am looking to import (this is in Addusers.exe format):

    Username, Full Name, Password, Description, HomeDrive, HomePath, Profile, Script, Account Expires (end of...), Terminal server Paths

    Any ideas?

      Many thanks for the prompt reply.

      Will User Commmander handle the extended attributes that addusers can't? I'm assuming it will (Quote from Website: Modify and delete user account information, including 18 specialized Terminal Server user settings and configuration fields).

        Yes, it will do these. You'll have to run two passes to get the TS data, though. TS data can only be set using the User Modify function. So, you will create the users with one pass, then modify your input file with the TS data you want to set and run your second pass as a modify.

          Excellent!! You have sold it to me!

          I already have a 25 user Hyena license for my administrators and it's proved very popular with them.

          Thanks again...
