I am new to server administration and have a problem getting new users to be members of a user group when bulk adding new users to Active directory using the dsadd command and Excel of connecting to its home directory
Running the command creates the new users but with a warning, the final parts could not be completed. When each new user logs in they can access their home directory on the file-server but they are not part of their assigned user group, so they cannot access a share drive.
On the GUI manually assigning users to the user group results in access for the user to the share drive.
Using the GUI in creating new users by right clicking on the user group creates the user but they are not members of the user group. My predecessor in the job has disappeared off the grid so no help forthcoming there.
Copy of the command i used
DSADD USER CN=Aisling ,OU=Students,DC=MAIN,DC=Long,DC=Short,DC=Local -UPN Aisling1@MAIN.Long.Short.Local -display "Aisling" -pwd ty9sDUNn -mustchpwd no -hmdir \\Defiant\Aisling$ -hmdrv H: -memberof CN=Students-group,DC=MAIN,DC=Long,DC=Short,DC=Local
As I said earlier I am new to this business and any help would be appreciated.
