Change user attribute based on group membership

Want to change an attribute on all members of an Active Directory group.  Then try this

Get-ADGroupMember -Identity Legal |             
where {$_.objectclass -eq "user"} |            
foreach {            
 Set-ADUser -Identity $($_.distinguishedName) -Department "Student"            
}


Get the group members – filter out nested groups by checking the objectclass of the object. For each user set the attribute.



You can test its worked or look at an attribute in a similar way



Get-ADGroupMember -Identity Legal |             
where {$_.objectclass -eq "user"} |            
foreach {            
 Get-ADUser -Identity $($_.distinguishedName) -Property Department |            
 select Name, distinguishedName, Department            
}


You can perform a similar process with the Quest cmdlets
