Create user accounts in the Active Directory

Hi Guys

I want to create new user accounts in AD. I have used the Built in AD Packages but I am getting errors because there are attributes that I don’t understand in the create User function.

These attributes are:

  • CommonName
  • Location
  • SAMAccountName

Please help me win understanding what is required in these attributes, if possible by a practical example.

Hi @Sandile_Mbatha,
These are properties required by the MS Active Directory. Please check attributes of any existing account in the AD, compare them and you should know what they mean. You need to switch the Active Directory Users and Computers console to the advanced view and then go to the Attribute Editor tab on the selected user’s account. Eventually, check on the MS AD documentation.
