This module permit you to install a Windows AD Domain controller on a Windows Server.

Moreover, it allows you to create/Remove User in Active Directory, but also permit you to create/Remove Organisational Unit in Active Directory

For adding multiple Users WITHOUT parser=future:

    $userhash = {
     'test' => {
        ensure               => present,
        path                 => 'OU=PLOP,DC=JRE,DC=LOCAL',
        accountname          => 'test',

        ensure               => present,
        path                 => 'OU=PLOP,DC=JRE,DC=LOCAL',
        accountname          => 'test2',
        lastname             => 'test2',
        firstname            => 'test22',
        passwordneverexpires => true,
        passwordlength       => 9,
        password             => 'M1Gr3atP@ssw0rd',
        emailaddress         => 'test2@jre.local',
      },
    }
    
    create_resources(windows_ad::user, $userhash)

About password: the password will be auto-generated or now you can specify your own password (min 8 characters, one alpha, one numeric, one special characters at least) Passwords will be saved to users.xml on your c: drive (C:\users.xml)

For adding a Group :

    windows_ad::group{'test':
      ensure               => present,
      displayname          => 'Test',
      path                 => 'CN=Users,DC=JRE,DC=LOCAL',
      groupname            => 'test',
      groupscope           => 'Global',
      groupcategory        => 'Security',
      description          => 'desc group',
    }

For adding members to a Group :

    windows_ad::groupmembers{'Member groupplop':
      ensure    => present,
      groupname => 'groupplop',
      members   => '"jre","test2"',
    }

For the group members respect the syntax : '"samaccountname","samaccountname"' and if only one member :'"jre"' The module doesn't delete users if you let ensure to present, and modify only the members list Otherwise, if you let in the list of the members you want to delete and put ensure to absent, then the module will delete only the members in the list
