One task that every systems administrator has to go through at some point is the creation of new user accounts.  Powershell makes this process simple and adds additional functionality.  The included XML file allows you to set default entries for fields and pre-populate dropdown lists.  The GUI takes the information that you type in for First Name and Last Name to auto-generate the Display Name, sAMAccountName and userPrincipalName (or you can change them manually).  And because the GUI uses the Microsoft-provided ActiveDirectory module, there is no extra software to download or syntax to learn.

You also have the ability of bulk-adding users via CSV.  To create users from a CSV, click on File > CSV Mode.  You can then import the CSV and browse through the users in the CSV.  Once the CSV is imported, you can create one user at a time or all at once.  If you want a CSV template created for you, click on File > Create CSV Template.

ANUC Requirements:
- Powershell v2 /v3
- ActiveDirectory module

Usage: Download the ANUC.ps1 file from the TechNet ScriptCenter.  Right-click on ANUC.ps1 and select 'Run with PowerShell'.  To modify the available options for drop-down lists and default entries, edit the ANUC.Options.XML file (if you do not have one, you will be prompted to create one). To create users from a CSV, click on File > CSV Mode.  You can then import the CSV and browse through the users in the CSV.  Once the CSV is imported, you can create one user at a time or all at once.

Features:

This PowerShell GUI was built with Sapien's PrimalForms 2011.
