Mine works fine

I have a custom query,
Query root is the root of the domain
Include subcontainers is checked

the LDAP syntax is:

(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=domain,dc=com))

See this:

Here's the LDAP syntax:

(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=domain,dc=com))

Change the DC=Domain,DC=com to match your domain name.

Also you might have to change the CN=Users as well if you moved the OU.  Ultimately you have to have the full DN of where the domain admins group lives.

Maybe some more info is needed...

When creating the saved Query
Select New then Define Query
Select Custom Search from the Find Drop down
Click Advanced and paste the LDAP syntax below:

(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=domain,dc=com))

or just

(memberOf=CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=domain,dc=com)

it still doesn't work...i can't even query the list of users belong to a builtin group by using the wizard either.
Here's the syntax to query for domain users arrived from the wizard:
(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=Domain Users*))

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mine won't work either if I do it with a wildcard.  I use the full DN.

also make sure your query root is set at the root of the domain.

It's working now using the custom query.
(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=domain,dc=com))
