3,000 test users

Do you ever have need of a few hundred to a few thousand random names to populate your Active Directory in order to test something?

This is the requirement I had a few weeks back so I dug out about 3,000 random names from the 1901 census and threw them into a csv file that can be read by the .

My names.csv file can be downloaded by clicking on the blog article link or by .

To get the users into active directory copy both adduseres.exe and names.csv to the root of your C: drive and then type in:

addusers /c c:\names.csv
