It really depends on what you're looking to see.

This may be enough for you:

dsquery group -samid "Domain Admins" | dsget group -members -expand | dsget user -display

That will find the Domain Admins group and list all of the members display names.

This is VBS code that will dump the groupmembers from a group.     It was in my library of sample code but I don't know where I originally got it otherwise I'd credit the author....  

Basically save the script as 'listusers.vbs'
Then run
CSCRIPT listusers.vbs <groupname>


On Error Resume Next

Dim objGrp, colArgs, objNetwork,objShell

Set objShell=CreateObject("wscript.shell")

set objNetwork=CreateObject("WScript.Network")

set colArgs=wscript.Arguments
 

'you can pass a group name as a parameter, otherwise you will be prompted.

if colArgs(0)="" then

 strGrpName=InputBox("Enter the name of the group to dump.  You quotes around names with spaces.",_

 "Group Info",CHR(34) & "Domain Admins" & Chr(34))

 else

strGrpName = colArgs(0)

end If
 

Set objGrp = GetObject("WinNT://" & objNetwork.UserDomain & "/" & strGrpName & ",group")

 if Err.Number <0 Then

  wscript.echo "Failed to connect to " & objNetwork.UserDomain & " or find group " & UCASE(strGrpName)

  wscript.echo "Error #"&err.number

  wscript.echo "Error Description (if available): " & err.description

  set objGrp=Nothing

  wscript.quit

 end If

icount=0

set memberlist=objGrp.Members

for each member in memberlist

'display member name and class, such as user or computer

  wscript.echo member.Name & "," & member.Class 

  icount=icount+1

Next
 

strMsg="Counted " & icount & " members of " & objNetwork.UserDomain & "\" & strGrpName

objShell.Popup strMsg,10,"Group Info",0+64
 

wscript.quit
 

'EOF
