PowerShell - 'Remove-ADGroupMember' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet

Dear Experts,

Basically I am searching how to remove a user from a group using only PowerShell.

For that the Remove-ADGroupMember should be used theoretically, but the issue that our PowerShell gives the below error message for it:

Error message
Apparently that needs some additional installation, but being not in that position no chance for that, could you please advice what alternatives are or how to make this command enable

Are you trying to run the command from Domain controller? You need to have windows 2008 R2 or above domain controller to have PowerShell active directory module. If yes.. then type following command prior to Remove-ADGroupMember command.

Import-Module Activedirectory

Open in new window

For Remove-ADGroupMember Syntax..

If you can't use the AD module, you can use the Quest AD cmdlets on any server/client.
