A. The following script, which you can download here, tries to bind to a group and if it doesn't find the group, creates it as a global security group. If you require a universal group instead of a global group, replace the ADS_GROUP_TYPE_GLOBAL_GROUP with ADS_GROUP_TYPE_UNIVERSAL_GROUP in the groupType Put command. You also need to replace the values for domainController, contextpath, and groupName.
