Function Add-FTPUser
{
Param ($FTPUsername, $FTPPassword)
 
    $ADDomain = [System.DirectoryServices.ActiveDirectory.Domain]::GetCurrentDomain()
    $ADDomainName = $ADDomain.Name
    $ADServer = ($ADDomain.InfrastructureRoleOwner.Name.Split(".")[0])
    $FQDN = "DC=" + $ADDomain.Name -Replace("\.",",DC=")
    $ADDomain = [ADSI] "LDAP://$ADServer/$FQDN"
    $CustomerOU = [ADSI] "LDAP://$CustomerOU,$FQDN"
    $User = [ADSI] "LDAP://CN=$FTPUsername,$CustomerOU,$FQDN"
    $PrincipalName = $FTPUsername + "@" + $ADDomainName
    $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.
