ADDING USER in AD in Windows 2003

And since I cover creating a local user (lusr) I thought it would only be right to cover creating an Active Directory user.

Method:
Click Start, highlight "Administrative Tools" and select "Active Directory Users and Computers"

Now, expand your domain name on the left side, and go to the bottom where it says "Users". Once you click on that, you will see all of the
automatically created users, you will also see all of the users you made before you ran dcpromo - that's because they all stay through the promotion to
DC. Anyway, to add a user, you can either right click the "Users" folder on the left side, or the blank area on the right side, and highlight "New" then
click "User"

In the next dialog we can set the user's First name, Last name and various other pieces of information, including their log-on name, and domain to
which we want to add them

After clicking "Next" you are presented with the password-settings screen. You can set the user's password and then have them change it on their
first log-on by selecting "User must change password at next logon". But in this tutorial, I will set it as their password, and not allow them to ever
change it without asking me (the administrator) to change it for them

In the next dialog, we get a summary of the user to be created. Click "Finish" and the user has been created

To copy a user account
1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
2. In the console tree, click Users.
Where?
o Active Directory Users and Computers/domain node/Users
Or, click the folder that contains the user account.
3. In the details pane, right-click the user account that you want to copy, and then click Copy.
4. In First name, type the user's first name.
5. In Last name, type the user's last name.
6. Modify Full name to add initials or reverse order of first and last names.
7. In User logon name, type the user logon name, click the UPN suffix in the drop-down list, and then click Next.
If the user will use a different name to log on to computers running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT, then you can change the user
logon name as it appears in User logon name (pre-Windows 2000) to the different name.
8. In Password and Confirm password, type the user's password, and then select the appropriate password options.
If the user account from which the new user account was copied was disabled, click Account is disabled to enable the new account.

To move a user account
Using the Windows interface
1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
2. In the console tree, click Users.
Where?
o

Active Directory Users and Computers/domain node/Users

Or, click the folder that contains the user account.
3. In the details pane, right-click the user you want to move, and then click Move.
4. In the Move dialog box, click the folder to which you want to move the user account.
