Hi.  I'd like to export all of our universal distribution groups and corresponding members to a csv file. So one big output for everything to a single file.  Is there a command that can do this?

My active directory is on Win 2003 R2.

Any help would be appreciated - thanks!

You can use the following PowerShell command...
Get-DistributionGroupMember -identity "distribution group name" | Export-Csv C:\MyFile.Csv

do you know if there is a way or wild card so that a single command will run through all the distribution groups at once to a single file?  that was what i was looking for.

You could use something like this
to get all groups to a Text File..

dsquery group "DC=MyDomain,dc=com" -limit 2000 > MyGroups.txt

Then using that list of groups you do the following..

dsget group 'Each_one_Of_My_groups" -members -expand > FileWithmembers.txt



This is a batch file that I have been using...

------ batch file 1 ------------
 Set Data=Groupmembership.txt

 dsquery group "DC=MyDomain,dc=com"  > MyGroups.txt

 For /F "delims=&" %%i in (MyGroups.txt) do Call GroupUsers.bat %%i %Data%
--------------


---------GroupUsers.bat------------

SET  GR=%1
SET  TO=%2
SET  FL=Temp.txt

REM This command dumps every user for Group %GR% to a file %FL%

        dsget group %GR% -members -expand > %FL%

REM This command send every user on the  last file to a new file %TO%
REM and the appends  the group name to the user name   %%i is the username, %GR% is the group

FOR /F  "delims=^" %%i in (%FL%) do @echo %%i%GR% >> %TO%

---------GroupUsers.bat------------

See this question I helped with last year

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Visual_Basic/VB_Script/Q_24328572.html

I used adfind in my example; the vbscript ended up being picked....both should work.  I didn't test Tony's script but he is a top guy and is scripts are solid.

Thanks
