get-adgroupmember cmdlet is not working.

I am trying the get-adgroupmember to list members in a domain group but I am getting a message in powershell saying it is not a valid command.  

get-adgroupmember "domain admins" -recursive | ft names

Please advise.

Have you imported the active directory module?

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Raj is correct. If you are not doing this on a domain controller you have to make sure that you have the RSAT Tools installed to have the ActiveDirectory module available as well.

When adding features it is called "AD DS Snap-Ins and Command-Line Tools features"

Try this:

$group = "Domain Admins"
$directorySearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher([ADSI]"")
$directorySearcher.Filter = "(&(objectclass=group)(name=$group))"
$directorySearcher.FindAll() | %{$_.Properties.member} | %{([ADSI]([System.String]::Format("LDAP://{0}",$_))).Properties.name}


It doesn't require any snap in and is compatible with DC 2003
