I have a list of servers that I need to nest a group in the Local Administrators group.
Anyone know how I can add the list of servers to a text file and then nest a group into all those servers ?

I cant do it via GPO since they are all in different OUs.

Try this for adding the Domain Group to the local Admin group.
GC C:\Servers.txt | %{

$domain="YourDomain.com"
$group = "YourGroup"

([adsi]"WinNT://$_/Administrators,group").Add("WinNT://$domain/$group,group")
}

Open in new window
