Powershell and Active Directory: Powershell Script to create multiple groups in Active Directory and add predefined users in to it.


HI,

Sometime a need arrives when you need to create a few Active Directory groups and add the same members to all the groups.

Today i need to create 20 Group and need to add same users to all the groups. To create 20 Group manually and then add users to it one by one is a hectic job for me .

So again i thought let do it with PowerShell.

To achieve my goal i wrote a simple Powershell script. Make sure before running the script Make sure you have "RSAT" installed and imported the "Active Directory" Module.

You can download the script from : http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Create-Multiple-Groups-in-4118c589

All is well and done as per our requirements.
