    My script is not copying group memberships over and I cant figure out what I'm doing wrong. Please help. There are over 100 accounts with different memberships. So basically oldacctA membership will go to newacctA, oldacctB to newacctB, etc.

    $OldUser = Get-Content -Path c:\powershell\olduser.txt | Get-QADUser
    $NewUser = Get-Content -Path c:\powershell\newuser_adm.txt | Get-QADUser

    $users = Get-QADUser $OldUser | select memberof
    foreach($user in $users.memberof)
    Add-QADGroupMember -Identity $user -Member $NewUser

    What errors are you getting from your script currently? Are you connecting to ActiveRoles or running against a native AD? What is the content of your text files?

    At first glance, I would probably try:

    $OldUser = Get-QADUser (Get-Content -Path c:\powershell\olduser.txt)
    $NewUser = Get-QADUser (Get-Content -Path c:\powershell\newuser_adm.txt)

    foreach ($group in $OldUser.Memberof)
    Add-QADGroupMember -Identity $group -Member $NewUser
