Creating your Users on Active Directory
Create the users Charles Holland, Sue Miller and Neena Patel on the Active Directory server.
The steps below show you how to create the user Charles Holland. Repeat these steps to create users Sue Miller and Neena Patel.
Before You Begin: Create the Example.com branch in Active Directory, and create an ExampleUsers folder.
Right-click on the ExampleUsers folder in the Example.com branch, and select New > User.
Create the user Charles Holland.
Define a password for the user Charles Holland.
Select Finish to save the user data for Charles Holland.
Right-click on the user Charles Holland to edit the user properties.
