    Hello, Is it possible to automate the process so that every user object that
    is created is added to a specific global group in addition to domain users?

    thanks

  2. This isn't possible through some configuration in GUI etc but it is
    fairly easy to accomplish with VBscript or other scripting utility.

    Definitely! However, because I work at a school and add 200 users at the
    start of the school year (usually day 1), I use the DS... command line
    commands (DSADD, DSMOD etc) in a .BAT file produced from an .csv file
    I'm given.

    DSMOD USER ... would do what you need, but if you are only creating one
    or two users, there is probably a better way.
