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.

If you have Windows 2008 R2 or later Domain controller the you can try the following code to get the required details of groups..
Get-ADGroup -Filter * -Properties info | Select Name,info | Export-csv C:\report.csv -nti

Open in new window

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
