Hi,

How's it going? I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a shell command that will export all security groups from a specific OU with the names\accounts of each member of the groups in a format that's  importable to a new AD domain.  

I've tried going to a few sites and using various commands but I'm running into issues as I'm a complete noob, this one doesn't work at all and I'm in a rush due to a project.
"csvde -d "ou=West,dc=MyDomain,dc=com" -f group.csv -l objectClass,cn,member,distinguishedName,sAMAccountName,groupType,objectCategory"

Any help would be most appreciated.

Cheers

Try looking at the Import/Export options of LDIFDE.

You can use the following script if you have MS AD PowerShell enabled..
Get-ADGroup -Filter {GroupCategory -eq "Security"} -ResultSetSize Unlimited | % {
$Group = $_
Get-ADGroupMember $Group.Name | Select @{L='GroupName';e={$Group.Name}},Name,ObjectClass
} | Export-Csv C:\Result.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

If not you may install Quest AD PS in any member computer in you domain and use the following script..
ActiveRoles Management Shell for Active Directory
Get-QADGroup -SizeLimit 0 | ?{$_.GroupType -eq "Security"} | % {
$Group = $_
Get-QADGroupMember $Group.Name | Select @{L='GroupName';e={$Group.Name}},Name,Type
} | Export-Csv C:\Result.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

I ended up using Manage engines ADManager Plus, which is what I would recommend to anyone doing a migration. The 30 day trial gives you full reports functionality for just about anything you can think of as well as bulk import export stuff. Really useful.

This is far easier and has all reports built into a gui, rather then trying to learn the powershell commands or learning to script .Great for non scripty people who need to get things done quickly.
