Hey Experts.

I would like to show the users in the various groups within a particular OU.

Department (OU)
>Computers (OU)
>Groups (OU)
>>PRT-1 (Group)
>>PRT-2 (Group)
>>PRT-3 (Group)

I want to have the users that are in the groups nested in the "Department OU > Groups OU" output to a log file.  I need to know the users listed in the particular group:

PRT-1
-userA
-userB

PRT-2
-userA
-userC
-userD

Thanks experts!!

Note: Change YourDomainName to your actual domain name.

From the DC, try:
dsquery user "CN=PRT-1,OU=Groups,OU=Computers,DC=YourDomainName,DC=com"

If that works, try this at CMD prompt:
for /f "tokens=1-2 delims==," %a in ('dsquery user "CN=PRT-1,OU=Groups,OU=Computers,DC=YourDomainName,DC=com"') do (echo %~b)

Actually, change that to dsget group "CN=GroupName,DC=domain,DC=name,DC=com" -members

This should get you where you want to be.

@echo off
cls

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dsquery group "OU=Groups,DC=Domain,DC=com" ^|sort') do (call :oumembers %%a)

exit /b

:oumembers
set ougroup=%1
echo %ougroup% >>ou-group-members.txt
::pause
for /f "tokens=1-2 delims==," %%a in ('dsget group %ougroup% -members ^|sort') do (echo %%~b >>ou-group-members.txt)
goto :eof

This will be a little nicer output file.

@echo off
cls

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dsquery group "OU=Groups,DC=Domain,DC=com" ^|sort') do (call :oumembers %%a)

exit /b

:oumembers
set ougroup=%1
echo %ougroup% >>ou-group-members.csv
::pause
for /f "tokens=1-2 delims==," %%a in ('dsget group %ougroup% -members ^|sort') do (echo ,%%~b >>ou-group-members.csv)
goto :eof

Great script!

Here is what I used:

@echo off
cls

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dsquery group "OU=Groups,DC=Domain,DC=com" ^|sort') do (call :oumembers %%a)

exit /b

:oumembers
set ougroup=%1
echo %ougroup% >>ou-group-members.csv
::pause
for /f "tokens=1-2 delims==," %%a in ('dsget group %ougroup% -members ^|sort') do (echo ,%%~b >>ou-group-members.csv)
goto :eof

Open in new window


The log file shows the username as:  lastname\

Not the user name.  How can I (we/you) fix that?

There may be a better way, but I do know this works.

@echo off
cls

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('dsquery group "OU=Groups,DC=domain,DC=com" ^|sort') do (call :oumembers %%a)

exit /b

:oumembers
set ougroup=%1
echo %ougroup% >>ou-group-members.csv
::pause
for /f "tokens=*" %%b in ('dsget group %ougroup% -members ^|sort') do (call :usersamid %%b)
goto :eof

:usersamid
set userid=%1
for /f "tokens=*" %%c in ('dsquery user %userid% -o samid') do echo ,%%c >>ou-group-members.csv
goto :eof

Hey everyone!  I have a question that received a couple of replies but the suggestions are for powershell and I asked for batch.  If any of you have a minute or two and would like some points, I would appreciate your help.
