    Hi guys,

    I wonder if you could help me with a problem I'm experiencing with Exercise 3. I've checked this over several times but can't see where I'm going wrong. Hopefully a new pair of eyes may be able to shed some light on this.

    I'm entering this into a notepad file called users.csv

    DN,objectClass,sAMAccountName,sn,givenName,userPrincipalName
    "CN=Danielle Tiedt,OU=Employees, DC=contoso,DC=com",user,dtiedt,Tiedt, Danielle,danielle.tiedt@constoso.com
    "CN=Lorrin Smith-Bates,OU=Employees,DC=contoso,DC=com",user,lsmithbates,Smith-Bates,Lorrin,lorrin.smithbates@contoso.com

    When I run the command -i -f c:\users.csv I receive the following error

    'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>csvde -i -f c:\users.csv
    Connecting to "(null)"
    Logging in as current user using SSPI
    Importing directory from file "c:\users.csv"
    Loading entries.
    Add error on line 2: No Such Attribute
    The server side error is "The parameter is incorrect."
    0 entries modified successfully.
    An error has occurred in the program
    No log files were written. In order to generate a log file, please
    specify the log file path via the -j option.'

    Your help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Yeah, have just checked the OU is setup correctly.

    Changed the file name to c:\users.csv.txt and command line line to include .txt but this hasn't resolved

    Is it because theres a space in this line Tiedt, Danielle,danielle.tiedt@constoso.com cause theres no quotes surrounding this bit I think it wont like it. I'm studying the 290 as well and trying to figure dsquery etc out.

    No Sorry I mean it just users.csv

    Have you got hide extensions ticked off
    tool\folder options\View [Tab]\ [] hide extensions for know file types
    then you can see if notepad file got right extension.

    edit: is your domain called constoso.com

    just looking at book

    dales: removed the space but same error appears

    Ence: I can confirm the Folder Options are as you suggested. 'Details' is the view I have selected and the file shows as 'Users.csv'.

    I have doubled checked the domain is named 'contoso.com'

    Just to confirm that my notepad file is divided into 3 lines and not chopped off at "CN=Lorrin as shown in this thread.

    Thanks for your assistance so far guys.
