    Update Active Directory from SQL Server?

    I am aware of how to read Active Directory entries using SQL Server, and use that information to update SQL Server data tables. Is it possible to initiate new entries in Active Directory, or update existing entries in Active Directory, from SQL Server? If so, it would give us a way to correct misspellings, add employees to Active Directory, etc. based on our master employee table in SQL Server.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    We have our employee database synched up with active directory by exporting flat files from the db to be picked up by this piece of software: Active Directory User Import, Import Tools

    It is possible to directly update using managed code (think CLR) but it is not an avenue we have explored in depth here.

    FYI the .NET reference you want to reference is System.DirectoryServices
