File 1 has a number of accounts with passwords.

File 2 needs these same accounts and passwords.

Can anyone tell me the except script steps required using create new account to do this automatically?

I think if I don't have it step by step, I'm not going to get. Thanks.

I use this in a DSM file pair, it allows new accounts for 2 privilege sets, change password, delete account.

It works over SSH/RDC connection as well, for remote admin.

Requires 2 scripts, the second in the second file (note the global passing)

manage - user accounts

#only admin privilege set may run this script

If [ Get ( ScriptParameter ) = "add account" ]

#NEW ACCOUNT

#

#Speicify Privilige set

Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "Create a NEW user account"; Message: "Please specify the Privilge Set to be assigned to

the new user account."; Buttons: “AAAAA”, “BBBBB” ]

If [ Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 1 ]

Set Field [ uAdmin::g_Privilege Set; "AAAAA" ]

Else If [ Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 2 ]

Set Field [ uAdmin::g_Privilege Set; "BBBBB" ]

End If

#

#Adds a new account name, password, and preconfigered privilege set.

#enter the new account name and password

Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "Create a NEW user account"; Message: "Enter the username and password for the new

account. Then click OK to create the account."; Buttons: “OK”, “Cancel”; Input #1: uAdmin::g_AcctName, "Account

name: "; Input #2: uAdmin::g_AcctPW, Password, "Account password: "; Input #3: uAdmin::g_Privilege Set, "Privilege

Set: " ]

#trap for cancel

If [ Get ( LastMessageChoice ) =2 ]

Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "Cancel"; Message: "Ok, the script will now cancel, and no changes have been made.";

Buttons: “OK” ]

Halt Script

End If

#

#

#create the new account in USER file: using the global values

If [ uAdmin::g_Privilege Set = "AAAAA" ]

#AAAAA privilege set

#

You must be assigned the Full Access privilege set to perform this script step. Select Run script with full
