Our company is working on a SharePoint BI deployment and I need to give two AD service accounts read permission to all AD user objects. I can do this one AD user at a time but this would take a long time and I would have to do it for each new user. How do I grant read access to these two service accounts for all current and future AD user account objects?

By default domain users can read almost all objects in AD, you can use delegation wizard to provide any additional permissions

All domain users are part of the "Authenticated Users" group, and by default have full read permissions on the domain partition (users/groups/OUs/etc.)  You should not have to do anything for READ-ONLY access.
