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
} | select samAccountName, Group, Name | export-csv -NoType C:\temp\ee\groupmembers.csv

Open in new window

I've added the full name to the output.
