net group "Name of group" username /add /domain

1) if the group name has spaces, put quotes around it
2) if you are not on the dc add the /domain and run from a pc that is joined to the domain
3) run under username that has domain admin rights (or assigned relevant permissions)
4) username can be a list of usernames separated by spaces
