Creating Security Groups

I have this script that I have been working on. I am now stuck and could use some help.

Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

$SourceGroup=Read-Host "What is the Software Distribution Group?"

$SchoolGroups= 
    "ALT_$SourceGroup",
    "BHS_$SourceGroup"

$SchoolOUs= 
    "OU=ALT Applications,OU=ALT Groups,OU=Altama Elementary School,OU=Elementary Schools,OU=Domain Sites,DC=GCBE,DC=local", 
    "OU=BHS Applications,OU=BHS Groups,OU=Brunswick High School,OU=High Schools,OU=Domain Sites,DC=GCBE,DC=local"

Foreach ($SchoolGroup in $SchoolGroups) {
New-QADGroup -Name $SchoolGroup -ParentContainer $SchoolOUs -SamAccountName $SchoolGroups -GroupType Security -GroupScope Global
Add-QADGroupMember $SourceGroup $SchoolGroups }

Open in new window


My goal is to prompt for a security group and then have the script create nested sub groups for each group listed in $SchoolGroups and to create them in their corresponding OU ($SchoolOUs).

I am then wanting to add the newly created groups into the $sourcegroup.

Try this..

$SourceGroup=Read-Host "What is the Software Distribution Group?"
$SchoolGroups= 
    "ALT_$SourceGroup",
    "BHS_$SourceGroup"

Foreach ($SchoolGroup in $SchoolGroups) {
If ($SchoolGroup -match "^ALT_") 
	{$SchoolOUs= "OU=ALT Applications,OU=ALT Groups,OU=Altama Elementary School,OU=Elementary Schools,OU=Domain Sites,DC=GCBE,DC=local"}
ElseIf ($SchoolGroup -match "^BHS_") 
	{$SchoolOUs= "OU=BHS Applications,OU=BHS Groups,OU=Brunswick High School,OU=High Schools,OU=Domain Sites,DC=GCBE,DC=local"}

New-QADGroup -Name $SchoolGroup -ParentContainer $SchoolOUs -SamAccountName $SchoolGroup -GroupType Security -GroupScope Global
}

#After creating the groups you can add the members..
$SchoolGroups | %{Add-QADGroupMember $_ $SchoolGroups}

Just what I needed!

I changed the last line to Add-QADGroupMember $SourceGroup $SchoolGroups
