Is there a command in Windows to assign UNIX attributes to Active Directory users? I need to have around 20,000 Active Directory users to have Unix attributes.

If you are running Windows Server 2003 R2 Active Directory, you may be able to use the built-in Identity Management for UNIX services to meet your needs; see this link from Microsoft for more information. If you haven't made the move to R2 yet, consider Services For Unix 3.5, a free download from the Microsoft website.
