  • Hi All,

    Whenever I use the below script, I get an error that.

  • You passed less that three arguments.

    Ask the author of the script to give you instructions on how to use it.

  • Unfortunately, author is out of organisation.. 

    Normally, it is configured in a scheduled task, since the task is not working, I tried to run manually via command prompt and got the above mentioned error.

    Can you please help me in this case?

    Thanks HA

  • You are not asking a scripting question.  You are asking for someone to fix a script for you.  THis forum is not a help desk for users.  It is a technical forum for scripters.

    You can learn how to read and use VBScript here:

    If you are not a technician then you can call a consultant to assist.

    You can also just look at the three arguments and read what they are looking for.

  • Thank you Jrv, 

    There was changes OU changes in Active Directory, Which was causing the script to hang.

    With your link, I was able to find out the issue and was able to resolve.

    Thank you once again. 

    Thanks HA

  • That is good.  As you can see we would not be able to know that.  We can answer specific questions about scripting.
