Hi again guys,
I have this script here that works to create a local user account w/ password. What I'm trying to do is get it to also add that same user to the local admins group. I know the user is created because I can see it within the GUI managment console, but it won't add it to the admin groups. It outputs this error:
Exception calling "add" with "1" argument(s): "A member could not be added to or removed from the local group because the member does not exist. " At C:\VM_scripts\CreateLocalUser02.ps1:103 char:1 + $group.add("WinNT://"+ $user +",user") + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , MethodInvocationException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CatchFromBaseAdapterMethodInvokeTI
Here's what I have inside the ps1 script:
param($computer="localhost", $user, $password) $objOu = [ADSI]"WinNT://$computer" $objUser = $objOU.Create("User", $user) $objUser.setpassword($password) $objUser.UserFlags = 64 + 65536 # ADS_UF_PASSWD_CANT_CHANGE + ADS_UF_DONT_EXPIRE_PASSWD $comp = [ADSI]("WinNT://$computer") $group = $comp.psbase.children.find("administrators") $group.add("WinNT://"+ $user +",user") $objUser.SetInfo()
Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
The user is not created until $obj.SetInfo() is called so that needs to happen before you try to add it to the group.
Ahhh that was the problem. Thank you, Mike!
