Creating AD account via Powershell



I created an Identity pool with PowerShell (another domain) , and I am trying to create computer accounts in this pool , but I want to use a different account to create those computer accounts with  New-AcctADAccount but it is failing : New-AcctADAccount -IdentityPoolName 'test1' -Count 1 -ADUserName 'domain\user1' -ADPassword $password  , I know that the ADUserName and ADPAssword parameters are only used in cloud deployment

MY Question is : is there a way to use those parameters on an on-premise deployment , because I really need to force the use of that account to create those ad account in my powershell script


thanks in advance

If you want to use alternative credentials you can use invoke-command in powershell.


Using your example you could run:


Invoke-Command -Credential domain\user1 -scriptblock { New-AcctADAccount -IdentityPoolName 'test1' -Count 1}


You will get a prompt to enter the password for the "User1" account. If you want to run it without a prompt, create a PSCredential object containing the username and password and provide the PSCredential object for the -Credential parameter.
