I have a scheduled task that runs a Powershell script against an AD group, "Group 1". I need to get all of the members of Group 1, and add them to Group 2. The script below successfully removes the user from Group 1 but I get an error at the Add-AdmGroup member line:

Can't find an object with identity 'user;Adaxes://domain.com/CN=User Name,OU=Users,DC=domain,DC=com'. 
$group = $Context.TargetObject
$members = $group.Members()
$members | ForEach-Object {    
    $Context.LogMessage("Removed group member " + $_.Name, "Information")
    Add-AdmGroupMember "Group 2" $_    

Why does the identity in the error message start with 'user;'? What is the correct way to accomplish this?

Why does the identity in the error message start with 'user;'?

This happens because the object being removed from one group and added to another is a user account. The error itself occurs because the Members method returns objects that cannot be used in the Members parameter of the Add-AdmGroupMember cmdlet. For details, see https://www.adaxes.com/sdk/?Add-AdmGrou ... er_Members.

What is the correct way to accomplish this?

Have a look at the following script from our repository: https://www.adaxes.com/script-repositor ... s-s548.htm.


Thanks, that did it.
