  • Tool for adding users for a normal user

    Hi,



    we're using Samba 4 and with that Active Directory. So, after installing the adminpak we can work with it. Now we're looking for a tool to let someone of the personnel department create users but without having access to the passwords. So, is there a way to add a user with a default password (that we can create)? The tools we're looking are preferably free

    Do a quick for HTA script to add AD user -- this will give you a web form that will talk to AD -- you can embed a default password in it

    Alternatively give the user permission to add users but not set passwords, then IT can enable them and set the password

        Quite difficult to coment about the free tool. Yes if you can want a paid tool but of low cost that would help you to resolve your issues you can update back and i can coment you for the same.

        Thanks again and may be possibel there must be paid tool for the same but i was unaware of it.

          No one will have access to the passwords if you use ADUC.

          Setup delegation and allow the specified users access to create users, specify a default password that MUST be changed at first bootup.

          You could also create user templates.
