  • Hi Rajeshreddy.k,

    To add multiple users to one group, I wouldn't use a .csv file since the only value you need from a list is the users to be added.

    To start create a list of users that should be added to the group, import this list in a variable called $users, the group distinguishedName in a variable called $Group and simply call the ActiveDirectory cmdlet Add-GroupMember.

    $Users = Get-Content -Path 'C:\ListOfUsernames.txt'
    $Group = 'CN=MyGroup,OU=MyOrg,DC=domain,DC=lcl'
    Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $Group -Members $Users
