GetAnyDomainController(server, domain, returnedName)

Returns the name of any domain controller for a domain that is directly trusted by the server.

UserCreate(server, userName, password, passwordAge, privilege, homeDir, comment, flags, scriptPath)

Creates a user on server with password, passwordAge, privilege, homeDir, comment, flags, and scriptPath.

Deletes a user from server.

UserGetAttributes(server, userName, password, passwordAge, privilege, homeDir, comment, flags, scriptPath)

Gets password, passwordAge, privilege, homeDir, comment, flags, and scriptPath for user.

Returns TRUE if user is a member of groupName.

LocalGroupGetMembers(server, groupName, userArrayRef)

Fills userArrayRef with the members of groupName.

LocalGroupGetMembersWithDomain(server, groupName, userRef)

This function is similar LocalGroupGetMembers but accepts an array or a hash reference. Unlike LocalGroupGetMembers it returns each user name as DOMAIN\USERNAME. If a hash reference is given, the function returns to each user or group name the type (group, user, alias etc.). The possible types are as follows:

  $SidTypeUser = 1;
  $SidTypeGroup = 2;
  $SidTypeDomain = 3;
  $SidTypeAlias = 4;
  $SidTypeWellKnownGroup = 5;
  $SidTypeDeletedAccount = 6;
  $SidTypeInvalid = 7;
  $SidTypeUnknown = 8;

Gets an array of server names or an hash with the server names and the comments as seen in the Network Neighborhood or the server manager. For flags, see SV_TYPE_* constants.

GetTransports(server, transportRef)

Enumerates the network transports of a computer. If transportRef is an array reference, it is filled with the transport names. If transportRef is a hash reference then a hash of hashes is filled with the data for the transports.

LoggedOnUsers(server, userRef)

Gets an array or hash with the users logged on at the specified computer. If userRef is a hash reference, the value is a semicolon separated string of username, logon domain and logon server.

GetAliasFromRID(server, RID, returnedName)
GetUserGroupFromRID(server, RID, returnedName)

Retrieves the name of an alias (i.e local group) or a user group for a RID from the specified server. These functions can be used for example to get the account name for the administrator account if it is renamed or localized.

Possible values for RID:

  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_ACCOUNT_OPS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_ADMINS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_BACKUP_OPS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_GUESTS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_POWER_USERS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_PRINT_OPS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_REPLICATOR
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_SYSTEM_OPS
  DOMAIN_ALIAS_RID_USERS
  DOMAIN_GROUP_RID_ADMINS
