Map out group memberships in Active Directory

This is a tough one, which is why it is 500 points. I am looking for a way to list my groups within Active Directory and have it map which groups and\or users are members of those groups. I was looking to do this manually in Visio but if there is a way to have this done automatically that would save a lot of time. I am working with about 300 groups and would like to see an overview of how they are connected. Anything that leads my in the right direction will get the points.

Hi EFHC,

there was actually an add on for visio 2002 that got discontinued that allowed you to import your AD structure into Visio

however it was ony available for Visio 2002 and wasnt cheap..

Microsoft Visio Enterprise Network Tools 2002

i was looking for a solution for the same thing some time ago and wasnt able to get the approval to purchase this product sadly

Cheers!

Actually what you can also try is, using a batch (logon) script and the IFMEMBER program check which AD group a certain user is in.

:: Check for group membership, then map drive
%LOGONSERVER%\NETLOGON\IFMEMBER.EXE "DOMAIN\VISIOUSERS"
IF NOT ERRORLEVEL==1 GOTO NOVISIO
IF /I EXIST "Q:" NET USE Q: /DELETE /YES
NET USE Q: \\servername\path\ /PERSISTENT:NO
Q:
 
:NOVISIO
:: rest of script..
