Hi EE

Anyone have a script that will compare the group membership from two accounts in active directory ?

Compare account A from account B and tell me the groups missing from account A

$a= Get-ADGroupMember GroupA
$a | Select name

$b = Get-ADGroupMember GroupB
$b| Select name

compare-object $a $b

You could easily turn this into a script.

Sorry - will still be the same idea only use Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership in place of Get-ADGroupMember

so -

$a = Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership -Identity Username
$b = Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership -Identity Username
compare $a $b
