    I was confused since most items invoked from the CLI will behave the same as invoking from run. I was hoping that this would be a AD interface via the CLI, but sadly it’s not :-( Several other articles are useful though so keep up the good work!

      this article was useful too ;) it started the ADUC gui from cli, exactly what i wanted.

      if this confuses you, you are in for a treat if you wanted ldap/ad cli tools. Sorry #sarcasm
