ADModifier is written in C#, and unlike the ADPopulator does not require Excel to be installed on the server. As a matter of fact all that is required to run this utility is .NET 2.0 framework.

Similarly to ADPopulator ADModifier utilizes a dictionary of European names to generate random material for SN, givenName, samAccountName, userPrincipal Name. This time in order to avoid the need for Excel or other databases I simply included the dictionary right in the executable by creating two classed FirstNames and LastNames. This change helps with rapid test environment setup, where all you need to do is just drop the executable on the server. But if you need to add some additional names into your test environment you would have to modify the source code (take a look at FirstNames and LastNames classes, I am sure it will be evident how to add additional names into the mix). ADModifer utilizes .NET config file (ADModifer.exe.config) for its configuration settings. I will go over the config file parameters in detail later in this blog.
