Hi EE

Can you someone help me modify this script so I can add a domain account instead of a group ?


$ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"
GC Servers.txt | %{
$Serv = $_
$domain="MyDomain"
$group = "GroupName"
      Try {
      ([adsi]"WinNT://$Serv/Administrators,group").Add("WinNT://$domain/$group,group")
      "" | Select @{N="Server";e={$Serv}},@{N="Status";e={"Success"}}
      }
      Catch{
      "" | Select @{N="Server";e={$Serv}},@{N="Status";e={"Failed"}}
      }
}



I canged the variable to $account and the line below and it failed .

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

to:
      ([adsi]"WinNT://$Serv/Administrators,group").Add("WinNT://$domain/$account,account")

Rather than $account, it should be $user.

So, try this:

$ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"
GC Servers.txt | %{
$Serv = $_
$domain="MyDomain"
$user = "UserName"
      Try {
      ([adsi]"WinNT://$Serv/Administrators,group").Add("WinNT://$domain/$user,user")
      "" | Select @{N="Server";e={$Serv}},@{N="Status";e={"Success"}}
      }
      Catch{
      "" | Select @{N="Server";e={$Serv}},@{N="Status";e={"Failed"}}
      }
}

Change the variable for $user to whatever the user's name is (sAMAccount name).
