We're getting ready to redo our company AD infrastructure. One of the things my boss would like to do is build up some template users with appropriate security group memberships for different user roles and departments in the company. He's asked me to piece together a powershell script that will take the group memberships from one user and apply them to a newly created user. I know I've seen a script somewhere that was able to do something like this, but I can't really remember where I saw it. Any ideas?

you can do this with quest if you want to use their cmdlets.

get-qadmemberof TEMPLATEACCOUNT | %{add-qadgroupmember $_ NEWUSERNAME}

Thanks Ken. Was different than what I was thinking of, but that did the trick. And I just about had it figured out myself, too...
