Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to create a user from the inetOrgPerson class in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).

The following example demonstrates how to create an inetOrgPerson user (U1) with a password (p@ssword), in the organizational unit (OU) (Test) in the Fabrikam.com domain:

New-ADUser -SamAccountName U1 -Name "User 1" -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "p@ssw0rd" -Force) -Enabled $true -Path 'OU=Test,DC=FABRIKAM,DC=COM' –Type iNetOrgPerson

  • -AccountExpirationDate
