This article presents an overview of Bamboo Solutions’ User Account Web Part. This Web Part enables users to create a user account in ADS or local NT at the same time that the user account is added to SharePoint. Administrators can assign Site Groups and Cross-Site groups along with defining ADS or local NT user attributes. In the Web Part properties, the administrator defines the server name, domain, organizational unit, the available Cross-site Groups, and an administrator user name and password for creating users in ADS as well as SharePoint. For NT, the administrator defines the server name, checks the Local NT domain and sets the group the user should be added to. This allows the administrator the flexibility of enabling users to create their own user accounts by also ensuring security requirements for domain access are maintained and user access via Cross-site Groups is properly restricted.
