Win Xp GUI program to create many AD user and mailbox accounts. On [url removed, login to view] is a program called Apollo AD - a similar expanded program is desired.
The mainscreen has options to create user accounts or mail accounts only. It should have an area to input settings and save these settings in the program - the settings would include the IP address or name of the domain controller (or whatever information is needed to allow for user creation functionality), Exchange server or IP address, and template account to use. Optional settings of default password to apply to accounts and email appendix.
The program has several form fields: first name field, last name field, append field, and alt. username field with a checkbox. THE PROGRAM WILL COPY THE TEMPLATE USER ACCOUNT SPECIFIED IN THE SETTINGS (WITHIN THE SAME OU AS THE TEMPLATE ACCOUNT) AND APPLY THE INFO SUPPLIED IN THE FIELDS TO CREATE THE NEW USER ACCOUNT. IF THE ALT. USERNAME CHECKBOX IS CHECKED THEN THE FIELD IS NO LONGER GRAYED OUT AND THE USER WILL BE CREATED WITH THE USERNAME SPECIFIED IN THIS FIELD. IF THIS CHECKBOX IS NOT CHECKED THEN THE USER WILL BE CREATED AS [url removed, login to view] (FIRSTDOTLAST). THE DISPLAY NAME OF THIS USER WILL BE CREATED AS LASTNAME, FIRSTNAME APPEND (LN, FN SPACE APPEND).
THERE SHOULD BE A MAIL CHECKBOX - IF CHECKED IT WILL CREATE AN EXCHANGE MAILBOX FOR THIS USER AS WELL USING THE USERNAME AS THE ALIAS AND THE DISPLAY NAME - SAME AS ABOVE. PUT A BUTTON ENTITLED NEXT USER - IF CLICKED WILL CREATE THE APPEARANCE OF A NEW SET OF FIELDS FOR ANOTHER USER AND SO ON FOR AT LEAST UP TO 100 USERS. THE PROGRAM SHOULD MAINTAIN SOME SORT OF LOG AS TO THE ACCOUNTs/MAILBOXES CREATED. IT SHOULD HAVE A PROGRESS METER LIKE THE ONE IN THE APOLLO PROGRAM.
