If you have quest powershell tools installed it can be done like this;

import-csv c:\test.csv | foreach{$_.logonname |add-qadgroupmember -identity "Test Group"}

Open in new window


If the quest tools aren't available, then you could try:

$members = Import-CSV c:\test.Csv -Header group
$members | ForEach-Object {add-Adgroupmember -Identity 'test group' -members $_.group}

Open in new window

small correction in Muhammad's code
replaced members with member    (typing error may be)  

Header name should be ServerName because the csv contains servers.

$members = Import-CSV c:\test.Csv 
$members | ForEach-Object {add-Adgroupmember -Identity 'test group' -member $_.ServerName}

Open in new window
