That's it. It took about 10 seconds to create 100 accounts.

Now I can open up Active Directory Users and computers and verify the accounts. If there are errors it will be displayed in the GUI for which account failed. You will then need to check the log files for error details.

The screenshot below show the 100 accounts created by the bulk creation tool.
