How to create a new account in HPC server 2003 by command line? RRS feed

  • Question

  • As title, server 2003, not 2008,  how to create a new user by cmd line?

    using dsa.msc is not a good way, if there are dozens to create.

  • Hello
    As CCS 2003 (and HPC Server 2008) authentication and authorisation are based on Active Directory you should be looking at automated creation of AD user accounts, and addition of those accounts to an AD group which is then included in the cluster users dialogue from withing the CCS Management console.
    There are a few ways to go about this: via scripting (check out http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scripts/ad/users/default.mspx?mfr=true for a good starting point), using the DSADD command line tool (try dsadd /?), or using LDIFDE and ldf files (or CSVDE).
