When thousands of users are configured to a network domain, it can be frustrating to manage their accounts one at a time. On a daily basis there are so many tasks that an administrators have to perform on user accounts starting from viewing and modifying user properties, user attributes, user account functions, managing directory attributes, moving the users from one OU to another, changing their group policies, managing their Exchange mailbox accounts and so on.

Performing all these administrative operations is not only time consuming but also takes a lot of efforts if carried out with the help of Microsoft’s built-in administrative tools. The ADUC (Active Directory User and Computer) MMC snap-in allows administrators to perform some common user account related functions like creating a new account, resetting user password, copying or moving an user account, setting their logon hours, deleting them, etc. The only limitation being these operations cannot be performed on bulk user accounts simultaneously.

Well now Lepide Active Directory Management and Reporting (LADMR) solves this problem. The Active Directory User Management feature of this impeccable tool allows administrators to manage bulk user accounts as well.
