Active Directory Groups

Last Modified: 2012-05-09


I've been given a new task in our Active Directory, we have a "Security Groups Global" OU and within this OU there are 1831 security groups!

my task is to search and look at each of these groups to find out if any are empty and delete the security groups which are empty! now searching 1831 groups is going to be boring and take quite a while... what i'm after is, is there another way of going about this? i.e. is there a tool out there which can do this for me? or a reporting tool that can tell me what groups are empty?

Kind Regards,
