Is it possible to bulk configure 1000 users at once in OCS? RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi, I couldn't find the answer to this after a bit of searching. After creating a 1000 users in active directory and exporting them to OCS there's a problem that the users aren't configured correctly in OCS. For each user it's necessary to Enable remote call control and fill in a number of other fields.


    Is there a way to do this so a human doesn't have do all 1000 by hand? As that human, please save me :-)

  • There are a few wsf scripts in the resource kit that can be used for bulk administration.

  • Excellent. Thanks. I think that will work. However when I try moveusers.wsf it pops me into a debugger with an exeception in write msg. I've never used wsf before. Is there anything special that needs to happen for it to work?

  • You need to put cscript in front of it, try running this from a command line, using your own path to the script:


    cscript "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007\ResKit\moveusers.wsf"

  • This may help as well; you can modify the raw attributes to get the same results:

  • How do you guys learn all this stuff? A lot to learn. I think I'm still before crawling.

    Is there anything that describes how moveusers.wsf is supposed to work? I run it and it asks me for a user@domain. I give one.

    Then it presents:

    1- x.y.company.com

    I have no idea what to put here. So I just put 1 since it seems to want an int.
    Then in the directory I see files like results00001.passed

    Not what I was expecting. I was hoping to get a data dump that I could manipulate and then reimport with my changes. So far I'm even getting the data out correctly.

    Can anyone please help with what I'm missing?

  • I've never used it myself, but if you open the script in notepad there are some instructions in there at the top. Also look for OCS_ResourceKitTools_ReadMe.doc which is installed with the tools, this also has some explanations.

  • Thanks. I didn't see the doc. That's helps a lot.
