Creating Users Using Net User

Hi Guys,

I am trying to create a local account using the net user command.

So far, I have added an account by using the command net user username password /add

This only creates the account as a normal user account and I need it to be a member of the administrators group.

Is there anyway you can do this using this command or similar command?

Heya,

You Could use the line:

net localgroup "Administrators" username /add

Or...

@Echo Off
Cls

::Enter username to be added
Set ChangeUser=Chris.Casey

::Enter group user to be added to
Set DestinationGroup=Administrators

Echo Adding user...
NET LOCALGROUP "%DestinationGroup%" %ChangeUser% /Add
Echo.
Echo Added %ChangeUser% to the %DestinationGroup% group.
Echo.
Pause
Exit

Save as adduser.bat

Hope this helps!!

As an after thought, to add a few users, and add them to groups try this...

AddUsers.bat

@Echo Off
FOR /F "skip=14 tokens=1,2,3 delims=:" %%a IN (Users.ini) DO CALL :ProcessINI %%a %%b %%c
GOTO :EOF
:ProcessINI
Set XPCDUser=%~1
Set XPCDPass=%~2
Set XPCDGroup=%~3
IF '%XPCDUser%'=='' GOTO :USRCLEAN
IF '%XPCDPass%'=='' SET XPCDPass=password
IF '%XPCDGroup%'=='' SET XPCDGroup=Users
NET USER %XPCDUser% %XPCDPass% /ADD>>NUL
Echo %XPCDUser% added to local system accounts
NET LOCALGROUP "%XPCDGroup%" %XPCDUser% /ADD>>NUL
Echo Added %XPCDUser% to %XPCDGroup% group
:USRCLEAN
Set XPCDUser=
Set XPCDPass=
Set XPCDGroup=
:EOF

Users.ini

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
::::Please all user accounts to be added to the local machine
::::under the [StartUserAccounts] label, in the following format;
::::
::::Example1= Jamie:Jamiespassword:Administrators
::::Example2= Helen:secret:Users
::::
::::Context: Username:Password:Group
::::
::::Please ensure to use ':' and not ';' in user lines.
::::
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

[StartUserAccounts]

Just add all the users you need in the Users.ini file, each on a new line.
