List of server admin groups using Powershell

Last Modified: 2012-11-19

I have a couple of servers running Windows 2008 Server, they are running various applications for our company.

Within each server there is the Administrator group and also some specific  (local) groups for our company:

Helpdesk Admins

Every week, I would like to run a script that will pull the membership of the local groups on the server. I have an admin server running Powershell 2 and I was thinking of using this.

Please note, the groups I mentioned above aren't Domain Security/Distribution Groups within Active Directory, they are local groups on the servers themselves.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
