Active Directory groups and OU question

I have a OU with users in there and I want to create a security group with them. Does anyone know a way to export in a quick simple way without having to do it one by one? I have hundreds of accounts in there. If possible some sort of step by step instructions if it involves scripting. Thanks

    Accepted Solution

    Highlight all of the users - right click - add to group

    Or create the security group. Go to members and hit add. Filter the search down to that one ou and click search (with no value). Every user will show up. Highlight all and click add to group
