HI,

I am trying to use the powershell command get-adgroupmember to list the members of a Security group on a windows 2008 R2 machine. It was working fine until I added another security group to it, which would bring the members up to about 6000.

The error I recieve is that the command exceeded the limit.  Any ideas?

I have had problems with this in the past and have not found a fix using the MS AD cmdlets. For large groups I use either the Quest tools or ADSI.

get-qadgroupmember GROUPNAME -sizelimit 0 -indirect | Select name, samaccountname

or just a count

(get-qadgroupmember GROUPNAME -sizelimit 0 -indirect).count
