I am having a lot of trouble creating a script that works that lists all of the groups in our domain with the word Intranet in it.

Anyone have a sample script or can create a script that will do this?

You can use a tool like adfind  http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=group)(name=*intranet*)"  name samacountname

Let me know how that works.

Thanks

Mike

Does it have to be VBScript?

I can give you a one-liner Powershell script with the Quest Active directory tools cmdlets.

Get-QADGroup -Name *intranet* | Format-Table Name, email, DN

That will find all groups (Distro and security actually) and return the name, email and DN.

You can also try this Vbscript

On Error Resume Next
Dim objConnection, objCommand, objRootDSE, strDNSDomain
Dim strFilter, strQuery, objRecordSet, gt
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOOBject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
'Get domain
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
strBase = "<LDAP://" & strDNSDomain & ">"
'Define the filter elements
strFilter = "(&(objectCategory=group)(name=*intranet*)"
'List all attributes you will require
strAttributes = "distinguishedName,sAMAccountName"
'compose query
strQuery = strBase & ";" & strFilter & ";" & strAttributes & ";subtree"
objCommand.CommandText = strQuery
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 99999
objCommand.Properties("Timeout") = 300
objCommand.Properties("Cache Results") = False
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
objRecordSet.MoveFirst
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    strDN = objRecordSet.Fields("distinguishedName")
    strSA = objRecordSet.Fields("sAMAccountName")
    Wscript.Echo strSA
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop
' Clean up.
objConnection.Close
Set objConnection = Nothing
Set objCommand = Nothing
Set objRootDSE = Nothing
Set objRecordSet = Nothing
