How to add a group in Active Directory (AD) to another group using the vastool command line?
In older versions of Authentication Services the following command could be used to add a group to another group:
# /opt/quest/bin/vastool -u <admin> group <groupname> add <groupname>
As of QAS 4.0 this no longer works by just passing in the group objects short name, however you can make it work still if you specify the group with it's full distinguished name as such:
# /opt/quest/bin/vastool -u <admin> group <groupname> add "CN=mygroup, OU=MyOrganizationalUnit, DC=example, DC=com"
Note: The admin account being used has to have sufficient permissions to modify groups as well, the last group name mentioned is the group being added.
