Points of My Scenario:
1. I am admin of a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain.
2. I need a powershell script that will create the following CSV or XLS output: (a) Retrieve all AD groups, then (b) List members for each group, next (c) provide last logon date/time, enabled/disabled status, and creation date for each member of the group.
3. The output will be used to create the following style XLS report attached.

SUMMARY: Please provide a powershell script that can provide the information in the attached spreadsheet (also explained in points 1 thru 3).

Try this one.

import-module activedirectory



Get-ADGroup -filter * | Sort -Property Name |%{

"Group:$($_.Name)"

  Get-ADGroupMember $_ | sort -Property objectClass,Name  |%{
 
    if ($_.objectClass -eq "group"){
     "           +------- subgroup   $($_.name )"

    }else
    {

   $user= Get-ADUser -identity $_.distinguishedName -Properties DisplayName, Enabled,LastLogonDate,whenCreated 

    "                  $($User.samaccountname,  $User.DisplayName, $User.Enabled, $User.LastLogonDate, $User.whenCreated )"
  
    }

  }
}

Hi pgnev:
this is an awesome script - wow! However, I noted 2 errors:
1. The Domain Controllers group & the Domain Computers group listed my domain account for each computer account in the respective groups.
2. Other computer groups did similarly - i.e., they listed a service account instead of the computers - for each computer in the group.

Question: Why does this happen? Is there a fix?

I modified script. Please replace "d:\temp1.csv" to correct path.

You will get what you wanted.

This script isn't ideal but it works.

import-module activedirectory

Get-ADGroup -filter * | Sort -Property Name |%{

$mGroup=$_.Name

Get-ADGroupMember $_ | sort -Property objectClass,Name  |%{
 
 $Mpar=$_

switch ($Mpar.objectClass)
{
    'group' {
    }
     
    'user' {
                    $user= Get-ADUser -identity $Mpar.distinguishedName -Properties DisplayName, Enabled,LastLogonDate,whenCreated -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

"$mGroup$($User.samaccountname)`t$($User.DisplayName)`t$($User.Enabled)`t$($User.LastLogonDate)`t$($User.whenCreated )`t" >>d:\temp1.csv

    }
   'computer'{
    }
    Default {}
}

  }
}

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
