On the server, go into Active Diretory users

Right click the group and select the Member Of tab. it lists all groups that groups is a member of.

i am not sure if i understand your question right, but To find groups in which a user is a member
Using the Windows interface

Using a command line

Using the Windows interface
Open Active Directory Users and Computers.

In the console tree, click Users.

Where?

Active Directory Users and Computers/domain node/Users

Or, click the folder that contains the user account.

In the details pane, right-click a user account, and then click Properties.

Click the Member Of tab.

Notes
Performing this task does not require you to have administrative credentials. Therefore, as a security best practice, consider performing this task as a user without administrative credentials.

To open Active Directory Users and Computers, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.

The Member Of tab for a user displays a list of groups in the domain where the user's account is located. Active Directory does not display groups that reside in trusted domains where the user is a member.

Using a command line
Open Command Prompt.

Type:

dsget userUserDN-memberof

 
Value       Description
UserDN
Specifies the distinguished name of the user object for which you want to display group membership.
Notes
Performing this task does not require you to have administrative credentials. Therefore, as a security best practice, consider performing this task as a user without administrative credentials.

To open a command prompt, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command prompt.

To view the complete syntax for this command, at a command prompt, type:

dsget user /?
