"net.exe localgroup <groupname>" will do this for you, if you redirect the output.
The problem is that there are lots of unneeded lines included; to get rid of those, it takes a bit more.
Just give this the name aof your group as an argument, and it will produce the same output as "net localgroup", only with header and trailer stripped.

@echo off

set Enable=FALSE
if %1.==. goto leave

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('net localgroup') do set CommandCompleted=%%a

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('net localgroup %1') do call :process %%a
goto leave

if "%1"=="-------------------------------------------------------------------------------" (
 set Enable=TRUE
 goto :eof
if /i %Enable%==FALSE goto :eof

if not "%*"=="%CommandCompleted%" echo %*
goto :eof

Thanks for the answer oBDA. I am a  developer and don't have full access to my production server. But I can see the users in the local groups of my production server through MMC from my windows 2000 professional desktop.
So is there any way that I can run some utilty from my machine to get all the users from the local groups of production box. Sorry for not being clear in my first question.
There is a tool in the resource kit that should do it called LOCAL

Displays members of local groups on remote servers or domains.

LOCAL group_name domain_name | \\server

  group_name    The name of the local group to list the members of.
  domain_name   The name of a network domain.
  \\server      The name of a network server.

  Local "Power Users" EastCoast
  Displays the members of the group 'Power Users' in the EastCoast domain.

  Local Administrators \\BLACKCAT
  Displays the members of the group Administrators on server BLACKCAT.

  Names that include space characters must be enclosed in double quotes.
  To list members of global groups use Global.Exe.
  To get the Server name for a give Domain use GetDC.Exe.

To put the output into a text file do this:


Hope that helps. Let me know if you need that tool if you don't have the resource kit...I can e-mail it to you.
