Hi folks,

I have been attempting to use net user add ... to create an account
for my last net ads dns test, but the account is created disabled and
cannot be used.

What is an alternative way to create an account in the domain or how
can I get rid of the disabled flag from the account using some command
line tool from a domain member?
