We have several contractors that come and go, it would be helpful to have a custom command that will copy only the member of groups from one user to another. We have done this previously with a powershell script, however when we tried to create a custom command in Adaxes we received the following errors.

Powershell script is:

$verbose = $true 
Set-Alias read Read-Host 
$logger = ".\user_anlage.txt" 

# Import Module for ActiveDirectory 
Import-Module ActiveDirectory 
Clear-Host 

function message($message) { 
    write-host $message -f "Yellow" 
} 

function print_groups($username) { 
    $groups = Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $username 
    foreach ($g in $groups) {write " + $($g.name)"} 
} 

try { 
    message "`Copycat! Copy group memberships of user A to B`n" 

    $username = read 'enter username' 
    message "User: $username`n" 
    print_groups $username 

    $option = read "`ncopy to user? (y|n)" 
    if($option -eq "y") { 
        do { 
            $copy_user = read "enter username" 
            message "User: $copy_user`n" 
            $groups = Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $username 

            try { 
                Add-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $copy_user -MemberOf $groups -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -WarningAction SilentlyContinue 
            } 
            catch { message " + " } 

            print_groups $copy_user 
            $option = read "`ncopy to user? (y|n)" 
        } 
        while($option -eq "y") 
    } 

    # script finished 
    message "`nFantastic!`n" 

} 
catch { 
    Write-Host $Error[0].Exception; 
    write-warning "I'm sorry, Jay. I'm afraid I can't do that." 
}
