    how can i bulk add users to a an AD group

    I have a new group called students internet.
    I need to add all students into this group.

    Currently each year group is nested under an ou called Students.
    I can't just add each year groups group into students internet. It doesn't do what i need.

    It needs to be the individual user accounts.

    I have very little experience in vb and batch scripts so is there a way of doing it in AD or with a 3rd party util.

    Select all the users in the OU, Right Click > Add to group

    If you want to bulk add new users I have a nice little script that can do this - just let me know.

    thanks for that.

    I tried looking round AD, just hadn't thought of that one.

    If you are wanting to do a selection in nested OUs then simply go to search in ADUC. Go to advanced and give it an OU to start at. Then select search without putting anything in the search field.

    If you have a description in the description field for the students, you could search on this and then know that you only have students?

    I think you can do that.
