Hello,

I'm looking for a script (in Powershell/or Quest cmdlets)  which can import  from csv file with distribution/security groups adres email all members and at the and save it as a nice Excell file with specific columns. This script also should list groups without members.

Example csv input file I attached to this question:  import.csv

Excell file should have these columns: GroupName, Group_email_address, Group_Type(Security/Distribution), Member(samaccountname), Name(First Name+Last Name).

I'll be very thankfull for help

Could you rewrite the first sentence of your question, as I can not really understand it and attach a more relevant file, as the current one is not very useful...

Ok, sorry form my bad english ;)

In my domain i have OU=DistributionGroups and OU=SecurityGroups. In these OU's there are exchange distribution groups and security groups.
My task is to report  (in powershell/Quest cmdlets) each group with all members to *.csv file (after that i'll import data to excell).

Finally *.csv file should have these columns: GroupName, Group_email_address, Group_Type(Security/Distribution), Member(samaccountname), Name(First Name+Last Name).

Thanks in advance!

What Exchange version do you have?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

What about this? This script runs in Exchange Server 2007 Management Shell.
You have to update the "yoursubdomain" and "yourdomain" parts. Thsi script gives all the members, not just the mailenabled users, so I put an extra column named "OtherInfo" where you can see if the member is a public folder or non-mail enabled user or contact or etc...
"ou=DistributionGroups,dc=yoursubdomain,dc=yourdomain", "ou=SecurityGroups,dc=yoursubdomain,dc=yourdomain" | 
	%{Get-DistributionGroup -OrganizationalUnit $_} | 
		%{$group = $_ ; Get-DistributionGroupMember $_ | 
			select-object @{n="groupname"; e={$group.name}}, 
				@{n="groupemailaddress";e={$_.primarysmtpaddress}},
				@{n="grouptype";e={if($group.recipientype -match 'SecurityGroup$'){"Security"}else{"Distribution"}}},
				@{n="member(samaccountname)";e={$_.samaccountname}},
				@{n="name(First + Last)"; e={$_.firstname +" " +$_.lastname}},
				@{n="OtherInfo";e={$_.RecipientType}}
			} | Export-Csv c:\groupsandmembers.csv -NoTypeInformation -Encoding UTF8

Works perfect :)...but can You please modify the script and add "PrimarySmtpAddress" of the group? (not user email).

Sorry, see attached modified version.
"ou=DistributionGroups,dc=yoursubdomain,dc=yourdomain", "ou=SecurityGroups,dc=yoursubdomain,dc=yourdomain" |   
        %{Get-DistributionGroup -OrganizationalUnit $_} |   
                %{$group = $_ ; Get-DistributionGroupMember $_ |   
                        select-object @{n="groupname"; e={$group.name}},   
                                @{n="groupemailaddress";e={$group.primarysmtpaddress}},  
                                @{n="grouptype";e={if($group.recipientype -match 'SecurityGroup$'){"Security"}else{"Distribution"}}},  
                                @{n="member(samaccountname)";e={$_.samaccountname}},  
                                @{n="name(First + Last)"; e={$_.firstname +" " +$_.lastname}},  
                                @{n="OtherInfo";e={$_.RecipientType}}
