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

If not provide a sample of how it should be, so I can modify the code for you..

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!
