Q. How can I add a user to a group by using Microsoft Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) in a script?

A. You can use VBScript code that's similar to the following snippet, which adds a user to a group by using the user's distinguished name (DN):

Set grp = GetObject("LDAP://cn=testgrp,ou=testing,dc=savilltech,dc=com")
Set oUser = GetObject("LDAP://cn=user1,ou=testing,dc=savilltech,dc=com")
