    $AddADUser = $CustomerOU.Create("User","CN=$FTPUsername")
    $AddADUser.Put("Description", "$FTPUsername")
    $AddADUser.Put("sAMAccountName", "$FTPUsername")
    $AddADUser.Put("userPrincipalName", "$PrincipalName")
    $AddADUser.Put("DisplayName", "$FTPUsername")
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
    $AddADUser.SetPassword($FTPPassword)
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
    $AddADUser.Psbase.Invokeset("AccountDisabled", "False")
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
    $AddADUser.Put("userAccountControl", "65536")
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
}

I didn’t change Primary Group of my FTP user. Because I don’t need for ACL.

Function Add-IISUser

    $ADDomain = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Domain]::GetCurrentDomain()

    $AddADUser.Psbase.Invokeset("AccountDisabled", "False")
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
    $AddADUser.Put("userAccountControl", "65536")
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
    $DomainNC = ([ADSI]"LDAP://RootDSE").DefaultNamingContext
    $DomainUsers = [ADSI]"LDAP://CN=Domain Users,CN=Users,$DomainNC"
    $DomainUsers.GetInfoEx(@("primaryGroupToken"), 0)
    $OldGroupToken = $DomainUsers.Get("primaryGroupToken")
    $DomainGuests = [ADSI]"LDAP://CN=IIS_USERS,CN=Users,$DomainNC"
    $DomainGuests.GetInfoEx(@("primaryGroupToken"), 0)
    $NewGroupToken = $DomainGuests.Get("primaryGroupToken")
    $DomainGuests.Add([String]($AddADUser.AdsPath))
    $AddADUser.Put("primaryGroupId", $NewGroupToken)
    $AddADUser.SetInfo()
    $DomainUsers.Remove([String]($AddADUser.AdsPath))
}

Our new Primary Group is IIS_USERS as you see. You can change that group name.

My script works on all Active Directory Infrastructures without any change on script.

Function Get-ADInfo
{
    $ADDomain = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Domain]::GetCurrentDomain()
    $ADDomainName = $ADDomain.Name
    $Netbios = $ADDomain.Name.Split(".")[0].ToUpper()
    $ADServer = ($ADDomain.InfrastructureRoleOwner.Name.Split(".")[0])
    $FQDN = "DC=" + $ADDomain.Name -Replace("\.",",DC=")
 
    $Results = New-Object Psobject
    $Results | Add-Member Noteproperty Domain $ADDomainName
    $Results | Add-Member Noteproperty FQDN $FQDN
    $Results | Add-Member Noteproperty Server $ADServer
    $Results | Add-Member Noteproperty Netbios $Netbios
    Write-Output $Results
}

Usage is pretty simple:

Get-ADInfo

Thats all! :)

Getting Netbios name:

(Get-ADInfo).Netbios

Getting FQDN:

(Get-ADInfo).FQDN

Getting Active Directory Domain Name:

(Get-ADInfo).$ADDomainName

Getting Active Directory Primary Server Name:

(Get-ADInfo).$ADServer

You can use this in your all scripts. You no longer need any active directory information.

It’s very easy to remove an Active Directory user with Powershell.

1
2
$CustomerOU = [ADSI] "LDAP://$CustomerOU,$FQDN"
$RemoveADUser = $CustomerOU.Delete("User", "CN=$Username")

Again and again, please be sure about your LDAP path.

You see how easy to change ad user password with Powershell.

1
2
3
$ADUser = [ADSI] "LDAP://CN=$Username,$CustomerOU,$FQDN"
$ADUser.SetPassword($Password)
$ADUser.SetInfo()

Again, be careful to LDAP name. Have fun!

As you know, changing Primary Group of Active Directory users is a difficult job for system administrators.
You need to set a new one, then assign that as a primary, after all you can remove old group.
But that’s easy if you know Powershell.

$User = [ADSI] "LDAP://CN=$Username,$CustomerOU,$FQDN"
$DomainNC = ([ADSI]"LDAP://RootDSE").DefaultNamingContext
$DomainUsers = [ADSI]"LDAP://CN=Domain Users,CN=Users,$DomainNC"
$DomainUsers.GetInfoEx(@("primaryGroupToken"), 0)
$OldGroupToken = $DomainUsers.Get("primaryGroupToken")
$DomainGuests = [ADSI]"LDAP://CN=IIS_USERS,CN=Users,$DomainNC"
$DomainGuests.GetInfoEx(@("primaryGroupToken"), 0)
$NewGroupToken = $DomainGuests.Get("primaryGroupToken")
$DomainGuests.Add([String]($User.AdsPath))
$User.Put("primaryGroupId", $NewGroupToken)
$User.SetInfo()
$DomainUsers.Remove([String]($User.AdsPath))

This script simply set IIS_USERS as a primary group of Active Directory users.

You have to set “Password never expires” for some active directory users like IIS or SCVMM users. To do this with Powershell, we’ll simply use “userAccountControl” property with Powershell.

1
2
3
$User = [ADSI] "LDAP://CN=$Username,$CustomerOU,$FQDN"
$User.Put("userAccountControl", "65536")
$User.SetInfo()

65536 means “Password never expires”. Be careful with LDAP name.
