Anyone ever worked with managing users from a script environment? Or is my question this badly formatted?
OSX Server is one of the most poorly documented serverplatforms out there, I would think that the official forum on apple.com would have a solution to this dilemma tho.

I am not sure what you mean by an "official" forum. While it is run by Apple, we are all just users like yourself. There are very few posts by Apple employees. You might want to submit a bug report for this.

As the non-apple geek that i am, where do i file a bug report?
(I understand that the majority of the forum is run by users, that's the way it normally works but it's suprising how few people there are that works with OSX Server)

One solution is to:
pwpolicy -a diradmin -u ajohnson -setpolicy "isDisabled=1"
But this doesn't disable the local useraccount (if there is one),
so then you would have to do:
sudo dscl . -create /Users/ajohnson UserShell /usr/bin/false
And this must be synced via some sort of scrip (idiotic infrastructure server solution.. it's not a server unless the user depends on it, then it's just a can with a bunch of server software running standalone).
There's also some other workarounds described here:
But none of these does what i want to do, i want to unify the whole adminisration via a web-gui (or a opengl built gui) hat can interact with the system running the accounts (LDAP).
So why in the name of the green planet can't i access all the data where it's designed to be? deviant apple is deviant..
