Hi Experts,

Is there a way to script the following:

If user is member of a certain department (AD Attribute) then populate a certain security group i.e. make the user a member of that security group?

Domain is Windows 2008 R2

TIA

Thanks Subsun, this seems to work. Is there a way to restrict this to a certain OU?
