In Server 2003:

I would like to make a copy of a pre-existing local group on the server and then modify its users.

How can I make a copy of a group? (with a new name, of course)

Alternatively, is there a way I can copy all the users from one group to another?

Scripting this would be pretty easy with adsi. Not sure if there is an easy non-script way to do this. – Zoredache May 6 '10 at 18:24

Another option, is to create a new group and then make the other group a member of the new group- albeit you cannot modify the members from the original group but you can add members to the new group.
