I have successfully run a dsquery to find accounts  with a primary group of domain users.  
 Is it possible to run a dsquery to users whos primary group is not equal to a group ID. Thank you

Put a not character (!) in front of the primarygroupid in your query

example  !primarygroupid=512

Thanks

Do it in front of the primary;  see my screenshot using adfind by Joe Richards  http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

I first looked for all accounts who had a primarygroupid of 513   then added the not! and it only returned the account that didn't have 513 as its primary group

513 is Domain Users

Thanks
