I knew it was already on my server, I was going crazy looking for it
yesterday, thanks for the jumpstart.
Question - In my network environment, we use a combination of last name and
student Id numbers. To be more specific, we use the last four letters of a
students name and the last four numbers of their student ID, and to make
sure that only that student logs in to change there password, we assign the
default password as their date of birth. So for example a student:
First Name: Sally
Last Name: Jones
Student ID: 88781234
Her user name would be
Is there a way to accomplish this using the Bulk add user scripts. Or do you
have alternatives that you can throw my way on how to format user accounts.
As you know in this type of environment with over 3000 students, assigning
every student the same default password, is just not safe and will cause
intense administrative work load.
