comment Batch script to create home home directories from list of names
Yeah, I tried to run it as is and the results weren't as expected. That's okay though, this will be a good first step to learning.

Not familiar with powershell as much, but let me know what you're thinking and I'll try it out for sure.

I thought about this after as well, so it seems using sudo is still the most secure in our scenario since there is nothing to really prevent root from just re-editing the parameter again...

Alright, we will just have to work with sudo then. This was actually the original plan, but thought there would be a way to simply block root some how. Thanks for the quick responses guys, very helpful!

Okay this makes more sense now. I was told we would sometimes need to give root access. Is there any limitations to having users use sudo instead of using root directly?

This seems like it might be the only way to go in our case then. Thanks for the input. I will continue to do a little more research and post an update if I find anything.

Ah okay. I also wanted to mention that we are using an EMC VNX 5100, but I'm not sure if that is relevant. I guess my question is, why does a local root account have access to AD user accounts through LDAP?
