Hi,

Check the below commands,

 1. How to find all members for a particular group
 
  dsget group "<DN of the group>" -members

1a. How to find all groups for a particular member (including nested groups)
 
  dsget user "<DN of the user>" -memberof -expand
  dsquery user -samid "username" | dsget user -memberof -expand
 

Can go through the below link for few more commands..,

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

dsquery user -samid USER | dsget user -Memberof -expand | dsget Group -samid

Replace USER for your user you need
