I am trying to use the cmd line for dsquery | dsget. The ultimates results that will be useful to me is 1. the user 2. what groups it is a member of. I have tried:
dsquery user "ou=users,ou=SubOU,dc=domain,dc=com" -o dn | dsget user -memberof > Z:\users.txt
*this gives me the groups, but I can't tell which user it belong to.

dsquery user "ou=users,ou=SubOU,dc=domain,dc=com" -o dn | dsget user -display > z:\users.txt
*this one shows all the users in the OU, but no group membership!

I need something like
User1
 - group1
 - group2
User2
 - group1
 - group3
 - group4
User3
 - group2
 - group3
 - group5
etc...

If possible, I'd like to do this from the command line using dsquery and dsget.
thanks in advance.

Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Customize the value of the ou variable with the desired OU.  Running the script will echo the users and groups to the file users.txt.


@echo off
setlocal
 
set ou="ou=users,ou=SubOU,dc=domain,dc=com"
 
for /F "tokens=*" %%G in ('dsquery user %ou%') do (
 echo %%G >> users.txt
 for /F "tokens=*" %%H in ('dsget user %%G -memberof') do echo - %%H >> users.txt
)

Thank you for the reply. I ran your script, I get 2 outputs (one of them for users, one of them for groups). Now, how do I match them up? I would like to show which user is a member of which of the groups. thanks for all the assistance.
