I suspect you've been here but just in case, check out:
Take the "Scripting Guys" link on the right side of the page and then review
the AD scripts. I simply don't have a way to test AD scripts but I think
there may be solutions other than using Shell that will get you much closer
to what you want.

Thanks for the reply Steve...I've tried this already too, it doesn't
work either. Hmmm. Maybe there is a security policy built into
Windows that does not allow VBscrips to access AD.
