Hi Mike,

there are multiple groups that have a similar name and i would like to export all the users of these groups.  In the output, have the group that the user is a member of along with the username

Using the Active Directory module, and shown for domain admins:
get-adgroup -filter "name -like 'dom*admi*'" | % {
  get-adgroupmember $_ | add-member NoteProperty Group $_.name -passThru -force

Open in new window

I've added the full name to the output.
