Every system admin gets request to send list of group members from all kinds of users. It’s very easy if you know how to search Internet (Bing! anyone).
Long back I posted VBScript to list the group members. Check here: https://anandthearchitect.wordpress.com/2008/10/18/get-members-list-from-a-domain-group-by-vbscript/
While back I posted an blog to list the AD group members using DSQuery command in Command Prompt. Check Here: https://anandthearchitect.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/get-active-directory-group-member-list/
Now we have the handy dandy power shell and Active Directory Module on latest version of Windows. Here is how you can list the group members using power shell.
1. Launch power shell
2. Import the AD module by typing
3. Type this command: (replace “finance” with your “AD group name”)
Get-ADGroupMember "finance" | Format-Table Name, samaccountname
Now the explanation. Get-ADGroupMember get the list of members on the specified group. We pipe that into Format-Table cmdlet which will display the results in table format. I only want Full Name and UserName of the member details.
