Hello,
I have a scripts that shows me all useraccounts that are member of an administrator group. When I ran it, it worked fine. I now have added an extra group:  Exchange Organization Administrators but I get the error: There is no such object on the server

This is the code

Option Explicit
Dim strMember, strDNSDomain, strContainer
Dim objGroup, objRootDSE
Dim arrMemberOf, arrMemberOf2, arrMemberOf3, arrMemberOf4
Dim strList, strList2, strList3, strList4, arrGroup

' Bind to Active Directory' 
strContainer = "cn=Administrators,cn=Builtin, "
Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("DefaultNamingContext")

' Get the Builtin Administrators group
Set objGroup = GetObject ("LDAP://"& strContainer & strDNSDomain)
objGroup.getInfo

arrMemberOf = objGroup.GetEx("member")

' Loop = For Each .... Next 
WScript.Echo "Members of Administrator groups " & vbCrLf
WScript.Echo strContainer & vbCr
WScript.Echo "----------------------------------" & vbCrLf
   For Each strMember in arrMemberOf
      strMember = Mid(strMember, 4, 330) 
      arrGroup = Split(strMember, "," )
      strList = strList & arrGroup(0) & " " & vbCrLf
   Next 
Wscript.Echo vbCr & strList

' Get the Domain Administrators group
strContainer = "cn=Domain Admins,cn=Users, "
Set objGroup = GetObject ("LDAP://"& strContainer & strDNSDomain)
objGroup.getInfo

arrMemberOf2 = objGroup.GetEx("member")

' Loop = For Each .... Next 
WScript.Echo strContainer & vbCr
WScript.Echo "----------------------------------" & vbCrLf
   For Each strMember in arrMemberOf2
      strMember = Mid(strMember, 4, 330) 
      arrGroup = Split(strMember, "," )
      strList2 = strList2 & arrGroup(0) & " " & vbCrLf
   Next 
Wscript.Echo vbCr & strList2

' Get the Enterprise Administrators group
strContainer = "cn=Enterprise Admins,cn=Users, "
Set objGroup = GetObject ("LDAP://"& strContainer & strDNSDomain)
objGroup.getInfo

arrMemberOf3 = objGroup.GetEx("member")

' Loop = For Each .... Next 
WScript.Echo strContainer & vbCr
WScript.Echo "----------------------------------" & vbCrLf
   For Each strMember in arrMemberOf3
      strMember = Mid(strMember, 4, 330) 
      arrGroup = Split(strMember, "," )
      strList3 = strList3 & arrGroup(0) & " " & vbCrLf
   Next 
Wscript.Echo vbCr & strList3

' Get the Exchange Administrators group
strContainer = "cn=Exchange Organization Administrators,cn=Microsoft Exchange Security Groups, "
Set objGroup = GetObject ("LDAP://"& strContainer & strDNSDomain)
objGroup.getInfo

arrMemberOf4 = objGroup.GetEx("member")

' Loop = For Each .... Next 
WScript.Echo strContainer & vbCr
WScript.Echo "----------------------------------" & vbCrLf
   For Each strMember in arrMemberOf4
      strMember = Mid(strMember, 4, 330) 
      arrGroup = Split(strMember, "," )
      strList4 = strList4 & arrGroup(0) & " " & vbCrLf
   Next 
Wscript.Echo vbCr & strList4

Wscript.Quit

Open in new window


When I look in AD the group is there.
Thanks for any help

There's an error in line 64: "Microsoft Exchange Security Groups" is an Organizational Unit, not a container. The line should read
strContainer = "cn=Exchange Organization Administrators,ou=Microsoft Exchange Security Groups,"
0
