Searching multilpe group memberships

Hi,

We have an all staff email address, made up of individual users and other distribution groups (All Staff - Scotland for example).  i want to run a Query to find any users who are not part of the all staff distribution list.

I had a go at a few LDAP Queries, but I could not get past checking membership of a single group, example below.

(&(&(&(|(&(objectCategory=person)(objectSid=*)(!samAccountType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.804:=3))(&(objectCategory=person)(!objectSid=*))(&(objectCategory=group)(groupType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.804:=14))))(objectCategory=user)(!memberOf=all staff)(!memberOf=All Staff - Central)(!memberOf=All Staff - Northern Ireland)))

Cheers

You're better off using some VBScript logic that will chase nested group membership, so that checking against the membership of "All Staff" will return true/false regardless of whether the user is a direct or nested member.

Some examples of scripts you can use to test for nested group memberships can be found here: http://www.rlmueller.net/freecode2.htm
