PowerShell to List Local Group Membership

Posted on 2014-12-15

Is there a way with powershell in Windows Server 2008R2 to list all members of  a specific group? They are all local users within a local group. I can use net localgroup "GroupName" to get the usernames but that doesn't show me FullNames and Descriptions which I need to view as well.

That gets all local user accounts. I only want to get local user accounts within a certain group. I would also only like to display the Name, FullName, and Description if that's possible.

$localgroup = 'Administrators'
gwmi -query "select PartComponent, __Server from Win32_GroupUser where GroupComponent=`"Win32_Group.Domain='$env:Computername',Name='$localgroup'`"" |
  % { [WMI] $_.PartComponent } |
  ft -a Domain, Name, FullName, Description
