Might be a little easier to use a CSV file. I have created 2 scripts below as I am not sure if you are talking about AD Groups (security) or Distribution Groups. 1st script is for Distribution Groups, 2nd is for AD Security.

Construct your CSV file like below (same CSV file for both scripts)
Groups  Users
Group1  user1
Group1  user2
Group1  user3
Group2  user9
Group2  user7

Distribution Group Bulk Add
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Powershell.E2010
$GroupList = Import-Csv "c:\mycsv.csv"
foreach ($Group in $GroupList) {
$Group.Groups
$Group.Users
Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity $Group.Groups -Member $Group.Users
}

Open in new window


Security Group Bulk Add
Import-Module activedirectory
$GroupList = Import-Csv "c:\mycsv.csv"
foreach ($Group in $GroupList) {
$Group.Groups
$Group.Users
Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $Group.Groups -Members $Group.Users
}

Open in new window
