Parsing text from a Powershell script

jahhan asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have created a powershell script that displays a column (ServerDN field) that has the following text:
/o=ABC Group/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=LAXMBGroup01/cn=Microsoft Private MDB
/o=ABC Group/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=LAXMBGroup02/cn=Microsoft Private MDB
/o=ABC Group/ou=First Administrative Group/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=LAXMBGroup03/cn=Microsoft Private MDB

I would like to minimize this column by only displaying LAXMBGroup01, LAXMBGroup01, LAXMBGroup01.
I am thinking the key is to use a parsing command; however, I am not good with reg expressions.  I would really appreciate if someone could help me resolve this issue.
