I have about 30 security groups that I need to get the members of into a csv/xls. I can run a dsquery or netgroup, but that's only per specific group.  Is there a way to get it for a list of groups either through command line, or through ADUC filtering?  All the group names contain the words "VPN User", so is there some type of wildcard search i can use, such as VPN User* or similar to get the membership of all groups?

You can do this with the quest powershell cmdlets. The powershell below should work.

get-qadgroup *VPN users* | foreach{
$name=$_.name
$members = get-qadgroupmember $name
"$members">>C:\$name.txt}

This will create a text file for each group with the names of the users in it.

Here is a powershell script that uses the quest ad cmdlets.

$Groups =Get-QADGroup *VPN Users*

foreach ($Group in $Groups) {

$Group | Out-file .\Groups.txt -Append
Get-QADGroupMember $Group | out-file .\Groups.txt -Append

}

Here are the cmdlets: http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx

i answered a question like this here


import-module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADGroupMember Group-Name | select name,SID | Export-Csv c:\myCSV.csv

Open in new window

in powershell

csvde -r "(&(objectClass=User)(memberof=CN=myDesiredGroup,OU=myGroupsOU,OU=myOU,DC=myDOMAIN,DC=local))" -f myCSV.csv

Open in new window

csvde

dsquery group -name myGroupName | dsget group -members

Open in new window

dsquery


but the first powershell and the last dsget can be recursive, if you want, with -recurse and -expand respectively.
