Active Directory: Copy Distribution List Members to Another Distribution List
Copy the contents below and save as copymembers.vbs to C: drive
Const ADS_GROUP_TYPE_GLOBAL_GROUP = &H2
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=Security Groups, dc=company, dc=com")
Set objOldGroup = GetObject("LDAP://CN=mysourcegroup, ou=security groups, dc=company, dc=com")
Set objNewGroup = GetObject("LDAP://CN=mytargetgroup, ou=security groups, dc=company, dc=com")
On Error Resume Next
For Each objUser in objOldGroup.Member
objNewGroup.Add "LDAP://" & objUser
Open Command prompt:
The script will copy all members in the "mysourcegroup" Distribution List to your "mytargetgroup" Distribution List.
Note: Some organizations like to use # in front of their Distribution List names so they appear together in the GAL. Because this is a special character it will need to be in double quotes to treat # as a literal.
