Modifying Group Attributes

Updated: February 28, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to modify an attribute of a group.

The following example demonstrates how to modify the description attribute of the group RODCAdmins in the domain:

Set-ADGroup RODCAdmins -Description "The delegated administrators of Read-Only Domain Controllers"

You can use the following parameters when you set many of the common values that are applied to groups in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS):

  • GroupCategory

  • HomePage

  • ManagedBy

  • State

  • StreetAddress

  • Description

  • DisplayName

For a full explanation of the parameters that you can pass to Set-ADGroup, at the Active Directory module command prompt, type Get-Help Set-ADGroup –detailed, and then press ENTER.
