I have not used Active Directory but have used NT Admin. I need to know the process to both add and delete users from the main menu. I believe to delete you can simply go to the users group on left tree and highlight desired user and right mouse click and select delete. I do not have any idea what is required to add. PLEASE HELP. THANKS.

Hi,

You are correct with deleting users, good…

Adding users is also easy and similar to deletion
1. Select the Users container on the left side from AD users and computer (If you want to add user in this container)
2. Now right click on the users container and you will find add/create user in the drop down list.
3. Click add user, Add user wizard pops-up fill in the required details and complete creation process.
4. Now Refrsh and will the find the new user on the right side.
Congrats you have done with adding a user

Similarly, to add users in in any other OU’s follow the above steps.

<b>NOTE </b>: <b>For creating user you should have the appropriate rights.</b>

You are Welcome..:)

    The above answer is correct but you can also do this without the users and computers snap-in if you would like. if you are migrating I assume that you have a large number of users to create. If that is the case you can easily script this using Powershell. If you would like to do this and need more information just email me. colin@sysadminsmith.com
