I came across an error when I clicked on ‘Everyone’ in the My newsfeed. The following error occurred:


I had to give the service account that is running the User Profile Service application pool full control permissions for the User Profile Service Application.

Creating user accounts from CSV in PowerShell

This PowerShell scripts shows how to create user accounts that are located in a .csv file and move it to a specified OU.
You can add lots of attributes to the New-ADUser cmdlet for example: –mail –manager –mobile etc.

I created a users.csv file before I executed this script:

FirstName LastName SamAccountName Password
Maarten Peeters m.peeters P@ssw0rd!


# Created by Maarten Peeters
# Created this script using Windows Server 2012# Import Active Directory module
Import-Module ActiveDirectory -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue# Set OU for the user accounts
$OU = “OU=Users,OU=Domain environment,DC=peet,DC=local”

# Get domain name
$dnsroot = ‘@’ + (Get-ADDomain).dnsroot

# Import the file with the users.
$users = Import-Csv .\users.csv -Delimiter “;”

foreach ($user in $users)

# Get password from CSV File
$Password = (ConvertTo-SecureString “$($user.Password)” -AsPlainText -force)

# Create Accounts

$FullName = ($user.FirstName + ” ” + $user.LastName)
$UserPrincipalName = ($user.SamAccountName + $dnsroot)

New-ADUser -SamAccountName $user.SamAccountName –Name $FullName –DisplayName $FullName -GivenName $user.FirstName -Surname $user.LastName –UserPrincipalName $UserPrincipalName -Enabled $true -ChangePasswordAtLogon $false -PasswordNeverExpires $false -Path $OU -AccountPassword $Password -PassThru | Out-Null
Write-Output “Created user $($user.SamAccountName)”
