  • Hi,

    Thanks for your question.

    Import-Csv -path C:\temp\Accounts.csv |%{New-LocalUser -Name $_.user -password -Computername $_.server| Add-LocalGroupMember -GroupName "Administrators" -Computername $_.server}

    Also, you can use the module in the link below with invoke-command cmdlet.


    Best Regards,


    Just do it.

    Thanks for your reply.

    You can write the password in the CSV file or behind the "-password" parameter.

    -password $_.password


    -password "123"

    Just do it.
