I have over 80 users that I need to update their "Member Of" field in their AD User Object > Member Of Tab

I have two GPOs to add, possibly three.

The users are in a txt and CSV file.

Is there a PS script that will process the update?

Import-Csv GroupMembers.csv | % { Add-ADGroupMember $_.Group -Member $_.User }

Open in new window

If the csv fle has rhe columns Group and User, and only a single user per row.


Thanks for this. I'll try this tomorrow.
