To create user accounts

  1. Log on as a member of the DomainAdmins group to a server that is joined to an Active Directory domain that has the Office Communications Server administrative tools installed.

  2. Click Start, and then click Run.

  3. In the Openbox, type dsa.msc, and then press ENTER.

  4. Right-click the Userscontainer or another container where you want to create your users, click New, and then click User.

  5. Complete the New Object - UserWizard.

    After you create users in Active Directory, enable the users so that they can connect to Office Communications Server. Office Communications Server provides the infrastructure to enable client applications to publish and subscribe to extended, or enhanced, presence information. The enhanced presence infrastructure includes categories and containers. Categories are collections of presence information, such as status, location, or calendar state. Containers are logical buckets into which clients group instances of various categories of presence information for publication to other users, depending on what a user wants the others to be able to see. When you enable users for Office Communications Server 2007 R2, they are automatically enabled for enhanced presence. You cannot reverse this setting.
