Search AD with a command line/sript to list a group and it's "Notes"

Hello,

In our environment, we use the Note's field in AD to store the Owner and Co-Owner information.

I need a command line so that I can get the Note's information out of AD (pertaining to AD groups)

You might want to take a look at ADFIND, it's a great free tool for getting info out pf AD, lots of options, and output formats, etc.

With ADFIND, you can try a specific group like this:

adfind -f "&(objectcategory=group)(name=your-group-name)(info=*)" name info

Do you want to extract all groups, or just one or a subset?  Also, what format do you want the output in?

Your command gets the info I was looking for.
I changed it to be like this:
Get-ADGroup -filter * -Properties info | ? {$_.info -ne $null} | Export-Csv "C:\backup\1.csv"

this also gets the info:
Get-ADGroup -filter * -Properties info | ? {$_.info -ne $null} | fl name, info

unfortunately this doesn't since it only gives the 1st row in the Notes section:
Get-ADGroup -filter * -Properties info | ? {$_.info -ne $null} | ft -auto name, info

Before I saw your reply I was looking at this:

looks pretty cool, but spendy

of course this is going to lead to my next question:
Powershell allows for Format Table, even with   -auto  for columnwidth

but what about  a way to use   FT      where number of rows is also AUTO

You can add a -wrap onto that to get multiple lines from the info field :
  Get-ADGroup -filter * -Properties info | ? {$_.info -ne $null} | ft -auto -wrap name, info
