    Hi all

    Im new to powershell and would like to know how I can update the description field of 50 global security groups they are all currently blank. I have a csv file with all the group names in column A and all the description in column B.

    Assuming your CSV column headers are 'groupname' and 'newdesc'


    Import-CSV whatever.csv | ForEach { Set-ADGroup -Identity $_.groupname -Desc $_.newdesc }

    Should do it.
