Incorrect answer to Question 1 of Lesson 2 On page 55, the answer to Question 1 of Lesson 2 is incorrect. Change: "DSADD will be the most useful option. You can enter one command line that includes all the parameters. By leaving the UserDN parameter empty, you can enter the users’ distinguished names one at a time in the command console. A user object template does not allow you to configure options including Title, Telephone Number and Web Page. Generating a comma-delimited text file would be time-consuming, by comparison, and would be overkill, particularly when so many parameters are identical." To: "DSADD can only handle one user at a time. For a successful import of multiple users, you can put all the DNs into a text file (such as myUserDNs.txt), then do the import from the command line with a FOR loop such as: FOR /F %i IN ( myUserDNs.txt ) DO dsadd user %i"
