I have managed to get Active Directory Auth working on my SharePoint environment. Now, I need to get User Management working for Active Directory. i.e. I want to add, delete & modify user profiles from within SharePoint. Is it possible?

For FBA users, I had installed an addon,, which let me do the same thing from Site Settings under 'Manage FBA users'.

You have to have the profile sync set up to replicate back to AD if you want to be able to manage information in SharePoint. See the definitive work from Spence Harbar.

Thx. Assuming that Profile sync is in place, How can I create new/manage users from within SharePoint UI? – neo269 Dec 2 '11 at 15:56
