Printing Active Directory

Is there a way to print out the groups and/or users from active directory?  Is there a file with a list maybe?

right click over the container in ad users and computers that contains the user accounts/groups that you want to print. choose export or export to file (I can't remember which). then save the exported file as a text (.txt) document. you can open it with notepad and print it out.

This is good but I should have been more clear in what I was trying to accomplish.  What I need is to be able to print a list of groups and the detail of who is in them. For example:

administrators:  john, joe, james
users:           sam, sarah

Or it could be the other way around.  Display users but add the column "member of".

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

the windows 2000 server resource kit has a command line tool named global.exe that will do want you want to do here. unfortunately, there are no built-in tools for this task (that i'm aware of).

take care.

Copy all AD users to a text file

From http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_20698009.html#9073544

Being a scripting nut, I tend to approach these kind of problems from a scripting standpoint.

copy and paste the code below into "Mattisastud.vbs" and then run it.

Then open the GroupMembership.txt file and it should have everything you need.  
If you want to view the machine accounts also, uncomment the commmented line...

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-  Code Below  -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-  

Dim myNetwork
Set myNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")

strDomain = myNetwork.UserDomain

Set objDomain = getobject("WinNT://" & strDomain) 'Grab the domain object
objDomain.filter = Array("Group") 'Filter for just computers.

Dim myFSO
Set myFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set myFile = myFSO.CreateTextFile("GroupMembership.txt",1)

myOutput = ""

For each objGroup in objDomain
    myOutput = myOutput & objGroup.Name & vbcrlf
   For Each objUser in objGroup.Members
'          myOutput = myOutput & vbtab & objUser.Name & vbcrlf
         If right(objUser.name,1) <> "$" Then
              myOutput = myOutput & vbtab & objUser.Name & vbcrlf
         End if
   Next
Next

WScript.Echo myOutput
myfile.writeline myOutput
