If you have a list of names in a text/csv file and the corresponding target OU:

import-csv file.csv | % {
NEW-ADGroup –name $_.Name –groupscope Global –path $_.OU
}

Open in new window


This is with the idea of you have a comma separated file as below

Name, OU
acctgroup, "OU-path"
mktgroup, "OU-Path"
