Using stsadm to add users to a SharePoint group

At first glance, the stsadm adduser command seems a bit of a pain when adding users into SharePoint because you have to specify a userlogin, useremail and username variable when using the command - these are not optional.

However, I have found that when I use dummy names for the useremail and username variables, the user profile database in MOSS overwrites them once the user has been added to the group. So, I used the following stsadm command to add users to a SharePoint group, which can be useful when you have bulk users to add from a CSV file:

stsadm -o adduser -url http:// -userlogin -useremail -group "" -username "Test User"

For example,

stsadm -o adduser -url https://portal.edulink.internal -userlogin EDULINK\phil.childs -useremail -group "Corporate Users" -username "Test User"

Once added, wait a few seconds and the e-mail address and user name changes from and Test User to the correct one specified in the user profile database. Make sure that you test this with one user first though, before creating a script to add 1000 users all at once!
