Hi guys hope you are all well and can assist.

We have a need to create more than 60 domain local groups.

The naming format of each of these groups will be:

hmv_c_<XY>

where:

hmv_c_

is to be a mandatory part of each domain local groups name, and with

<XY>

a 2 digit country code, which is to be read from a text file called countries.txt


So, Id like to automate this.

<Script> countries.txt

Here is the contents of countries.txt===========================

AE
AR
AT


etc
------------------

So, basically,

I want to create domain local groups by reading countries.txt, and for each country code, create a domain local group.

Example:

<script> countries.txt

AE
AR
AT

hmv_c_AE
hmv_c_AR
hmv_c_AT

Any help greatly appreciated.
