STSADM command to add AD Groups to a SharePoint Group RRS feed


  • Hi,

    It seems that stsadm –o adduser command by default doesn’t support AD group.

    I suggest you do that through UI in site settings.

    Or You can use Gary lapoint stsadm command to add AD group


    create a script like a addGroupAD.bat

    there you add the line to your sites


    stsadm -o gl-adduser2 -url "http://intranet" -userlogin "nt authority\authenticated users" -group "Viewers"

    I provide you the link about stsadm -o adduser for your reference:
