Hi all ..

Anyone know a way with PowerShell or Quest tools to pull this information from domain groups ?

Ideally would be to pull from multiple groups that I enter into a text file .

With the Quest AD cmdelts you can do this and export it to csv file

$Group = get-content c:\temp\groups.txt
$Groups | Foreach {
get-qadgroup $_
} | Select Name, ManagedBy, Description, Notes | Export-csv c:\temp\groups.csv -no type
