Hi

I'm new to LDAP in active Directory and need simple query to list users in a group.
Tryed to build querie in the (Saved Queries) in Management Coonsole 3.0 and it will not display. Could someone build me a simple querie that all I have to do is just change the name of the group.

Thanks..

How about this:
(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=YourGroupName,OU=YourOU,DC=YourDomain,DC=com))

Thanks, I Tryed but didn't work. Would it be Group first then Members? (No one listed in memberof) when I run with AD and look in the group. Not sure what (OU=??) is used for. Thanks..

It works for me as an LDAP Query.
You need to add the Distinguished Name of the group you want to query after "memberOf=".

For example, the following works on my test machine:
"(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=Domain Admins,CN=Users,DC=contoso,DC=local))"

If you don't understand what a Distinguished Name is, look here:
http://www.selfadsi.org/ldap-path.htm

Note that in Active Directory Users and Computers, with "Advanced Features" enabled on the View menu, then you can use the "Attribute Editor" tab on the properties sheet of your Group to view the Distinguished Name.

Reading your question again, can't you just view the Group's MemberOf tab to get the info you need rather than write a query??

If I create an Advanced Custom Search type Query in AD, then I can paste in the LDAP Query I gave you above (minus the inverted commas) and it works fine.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. This is what I put together to get this to work. The resign I needed it in a Query is that then it could be exported to CVS file to review for eliminating overlapping groups.
(memberOf:1.2.840.113556.1.4.1941:=CN=”Your_Nane_of_Your_Group”=Groups,OU=Users,OU=”Name of the Sever”,DC=com)

Thanks

For, me I couldn't get this to work until I put the full distinguished name of the group. Thanks for the help, cantoris:

(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=CN=GROUP_NAME,OU=MyOU1,OU=MyOU2,OU=MyOU3,DC=DomainName,DC=com))
