Script to create 10,000 test users

I thought I would share the script I made to create 10,000 test users in an NT 4.0 domain for my test lab.  I should note a couple of things:

  • When I first ran this script, my domain only had the default ‘guest’ and ‘administrator’ accounts.
  • I used Visual Basic Script (VBS) which does not require pre-defining of variables or variable types (adding ‘option explicit’ requirements would case the script to fail)
  • The script was ran from a command line as ‘cscript.exe CreateUsersWinNtObj.vbs’
  • No checking was performed to verify that the user ID was unique (in a ‘real’ domain this could cause a problem.
  • This script was not tested with Active Directory domains. ¬†However, the code would most likely work — creating all 10,000 users in the default “cn=users” container.

If you have any questions please let me know.
