Hi,
I want an excel exported from AD for Groups & their respective members.

I don't want to use QAD & the format has to be that One Group per row & all the members in it in the same row but in second column.

Only SamAccountName of user should be there.

Server & Domain is 2008R2

Regards,
A

You can try this code and see if you get the result in expected format..
Get-ADGroup -Filter * | % {
$members = Get-ADGroupMember $_.DistinguishedName -Recursive | 
	?{$_.objectClass -eq "user"} | 
	Select -ExpandProperty SamAccountName
$_ | Select @{N="GroupName";E={$_.Name}},@{N="members";E={$members -join "`n"}}
}| Export-Csv C:\report.csv -nti

Open in new window


Here is a slightly modified code (Different output format) which will help you to filter through members..
Get-ADGroup -Filter * | % {
$Group = $_.Name
Get-ADGroupMember $_.DistinguishedName -Recursive | 
	?{$_.objectClass -eq "user"} | 
	Select @{N="GroupName";E={$Group}},SamAccountName
}| Export-Csv C:\report.csv -nti

Open in new window

Thats what the first code does.. Did you try it?
If not provide a sample of how it should be, so I can modify the code for you..

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.

Column A, Row 1 = Group1
Column B, Row 1= Allusers in Group1

Column A, Row2=Group2
Column B, Row2= Allusers in Group2

The first code only gives one user per group.
Second code just makes new row for every user.

My bad, you are right. It does work.

However, would it be too much to ask if they can be separated by comma?
It's really not readable if you have 100 users in one group & so on....

Please!
