Transferring MemberOf from User to User

    I am looking for a way to transfer group memberships from on user, to
    another user that resides in a trusted forest.

    I can enumerate the groups with the memberof tool from joeware, but how
    would I go about adding this group list into a user in the trusted forest. I
    would just do it manually but this is something I need to do for 600-700

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the reply,

    I am in a domain migration, and im using the ADMT but what all my users
    accounts are not being migrated to the new trusted forest, they are just
    going to be using already existing accounts. So I need to transfer their
    MemberOf list over to these new users.

    providing I'm understanding your issue correctly, you should be able to take
    advantage of the script listed at (an extract from AD Cookbook by
    Robbie Allen). In your case, you would obviously need to repeat the process
    for all user accounts in question, but this can be done relatively easily by
    parsing their list extracted directly from AD and invoking the code
    referenced above in the loop...
