Powershell - Comparing groups membership

I am trying to compare the group members of one group to multiple others.


Is there a way in Powershell for me to see if all the users in Group2,Group3 are members of Group1 ? ideally for it to output the SAmAccountNames of missing accounts that are in Group2 and Group3 that are not in Group1

Powershell includes a cmdlet called Compare-Object that you can use to accomplish this. You would need to first import the AD powershell tool and then use the Get-ADGroupMember cmdlet to pull the list of users from Group 2 and Group 3, then compare them to the members in Group 1. See the following for explanations of these cmdlets.

You just want to verify if the members of Group2 & Group3 are also members of Group1.. Am I correct?

Hi Subsub .. yes
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
