Hi,

I am working on script which should create user, set in administrator group, set password never expire etc. and to set password which is generated from hostname.

Example:

Quote

 

$CMD = "Net user /add xyz 123"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "Net localgroup administrators xyz /add"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE Name='xyz' SET PasswordExpires=FALSE"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE Name='xyz' SET Passwordchangeable=FALSE"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "set hostname=%computername%"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "set newpassword=123.%hostname%.123"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "net user xyz password /add"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "net user xyz %newpassword%"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

 

 

This working great as batch, but as compiled exe do not want to set correct password, seems that code is not ok because of variables...

Where i am wrong?
thank you

The simple answer is that the environment values aren't persistent so they are lost after the command is completed!
Just retink your approach here. ;)

So why use a script here at all? You are simply emulating a batchfile run line by line?

So wouldn't this do the same thing ? :

$CMD = "Net user /add xyz 123"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "Net localgroup administrators xyz /add"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE Name='xyz' SET PasswordExpires=FALSE"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "WMIC USERACCOUNT WHERE Name='xyz' SET Passwordchangeable=FALSE"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "net user xyz password /add"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)

$CMD = "net user xyz 123." & @ComputerName & ".123"
RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $CMD)
