Hello,
 
I need to create several security groups with large number of members.

There are existing Distribution groups already established exactly the way I would like my security groups to be (exact same members). Is there any way to duplicate all the members from a Distribution group to a new security groups. It will save me hours if I dont have to manually add hundred of users to new security group.

Thanks,
Chaz

Hi,
There really is not a way to create a template or a drag copy, but you can script it.
