Perl + NT Users

I need to make a logon script for the users wich logon in a NT domain.

I need to know if it's possible to know if the user who is logging belongs to a specific group?

So the srcipt should say:

if "usergroup" == "GROUP"{

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


or on some machines/versions which only support the short version:

$)     or     $(
Win32::NetAdmin is your friend. If you don't have this module installed you can get it from

It offers two functions GroupIsMember and LocalGroupIsMember which test if a certain username is member of a local of NT domain group.

I was successful testing this against my own account using the code below for a local group check:

use Win32::NetAdmin qw(LocalGroupIsMember);

print LocalGroupIsMember("","Administrators","thoellri"),"\n";

Hope this helps
