I have a request that requires me to show a list of all the user names in a specific group, and I am not sure which way is easier. Can someone place point me in the right direction. Thanks.

In AD, highlight the OU that contains the users you want to export.

Click Actions > Export
Select the location and name of the file to create.

That's it!

Need -expand  (For the -members parameter, displays the recursively expanded list of members of the group)
dsget group "cn=ALLbadBoys,ou=MyOU,dc=mydomain,dc=com" -members  -expand
