    Accepted Solution

    By default a non-DA will have read access so if they have ADUC installed they can use that.
    Another easy way is to use adfind by MVP Joe Richards
    Joe has a great shortcut for a users
    adfind -sc u:<username> memberof
    that will also give you the groups the user is a memeber of.
