Powershell Nested Groups Memberships

Hi there,

the following challenge is driving me mad:

I want to create AD Groups and nest them, based on their structure.


Organizational Units:
[Department A]
-----[Office A1]
-----[Office A2]
----------[SubOffice AA1]
----------[SubOffice AA2]

Now I want to get the following:

Distribution-List [DEPARTMENT A] with members {Office A1;Office A2;SubOfficeAA1...}. Any idea how to solve this?

I know the cmdlet for adding users/groups to a group. My question is related to automate the task of nesting them.

I'm assuming the DGs naming convention will match the OU name, correct?  Do all OUs in question live under the same parent OU or are there multiple parents?
