Hi,
I have been give the above task, i immediately thought of powershell, which i am still a novice at. I just prefer the one liners to get the job done.
I borrowed and burgled some code to get the below:

function func_Member_of()
{
# Builds a group membership for a given user, computer or group
# Returns only direct group membership

$input | ForEach-Object {
      if ($_.primaryGroupID) {
            $_.SID.Value -replace '-\d+$',"-$($_.PrimaryGroupID)" |Get-QADGroup -Connection $_.Connection
      }
      if ($_.memberOf) {
            $_.memberOf | Get-QADGroup -Connection $_.Connection
      }
}
}


 Get-QADUser -SizeLimit 0 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | func_Member_of | Select-Object -Property `
"name","Office","group","company" |Export-Csv c:\adgroup.csv

This unfortunately only returns the groups, no mention of the users or any of the other parameters i would like to sort on further down the line.
I figure that the fuction needs to be expanded to accommodate this.

If you have an answer thats not PS, thats fine.

Thanks in advance.

Hi BSonPosh,
That has cleaned up the group names, thanks for that.
There is still the issue of a long list of groups (approx 4000), but it still doesn't show the users.

All i have managed to show with this script is a long list of groups.
I also need to show the users relative to their group membership.

The script seems to order the groups the right way (per user), but the user has been omitted from the output.

Get-QADUser -sl 0 -ea 0| Select-Object name,Office,group,company,TokenGroups | Export-Csv c:\adgroup.csv -NoType
