Group Permissions on AD Objects

Posted on 2012-08-15
Last Modified: 2012-08-22
I am trying to find out on which Organizational Units  in Active Directory a particular group has permissions.  In other words, I want to be able to put in the name of a group and the output is the OUs in AD it has permissions to.  Does anyone know if there a way to do this through powershell or some other scripting method?  Thx.

    Try using:
    Get-ADUser -filter (-not (thumbnailPhoto -like "*"))
     to get a collection of all user objects that do not have  a thumbNail.

    The Get-ADUser cmdlet also supports a SearchBase parameter if you want to specify a specific OU as the starting point.
