Try this: Set-SPUser -Identity 'fun/factory' -Web http://someserver -Group 'Name of group'

I think you need to do a web.Update after adding a user.

(I'm not a machine with SharePoint installed at the moment to test, sorry)

What happens when you try to get the user in PowerShell?

Get-SPUser "wm\test2" –Web "http://mydomain/sites/s1"

Furthermore, does the user already exist in your domain?

  • When I run your script I get userLogin and DisplayName with wm\test2, Yes the user is already exist in my domain. – Medes Oct 26 '12 at 15:31
