    Can anyone point me at the correct syntax for using the DSADD user command
    and adding a user to multiple groups, I can only add a new user to one group
    at creation time. An edited version of what I have now is below

    DSadd user "CN=Last\, First,OU=AB,DC=Xyxyxyx,DC=Com" -pwd Password -samid
    First.last -fn First -ln Last -empid 12345 -display "Last, First" -loscr
    Script.vbs -upn -memberof "CN=.Abc

  2. Separate group distinguished names with spaces. For example (watch line
    wrapping, it usually wraps at spaces):

    dsadd user "CN=Last\, First,OU=AB,DC=Xyxyxyx,DC=Com" -memberOf
    "cn=group1,OU=AB,DC=Xyxyxyx,DC=Com" "cn=group2,OU=AB,DC=Xyxyxyx,DC=Com"

    All values up to the next dash "-" are taken as group distinguished names.

    Hmm... I think, that MS better update their help, because there written
    that DN's must be separated with ";".

    Thanks, that did the trick, it seems obvious now and I did try a few
    variations but not that one.
