Is there a ready way to edit the default user object for AD? I'm setting some custom attributes in AD and I want the experience for the administrators to be the same if an account is copied versus created new.

I was thinking that I should be able to set a value via ADSI Edit, probably under the Configuration\WellKnown Security Principals area but I haven't seen what I'm after there so far.

  • What exactly do you want to configure? – jscott Feb 22 '13 at 21:33
  • @jscott - a couple custom attributes, the unix home directory, department, and home drive come to mind. – Tim Brigham Feb 22 '13 at 21:37

The easiest thing to do is create a user with all the settings you want, and then copy the user.
