Hello experts,

I need to query an OU and get all groups and all members of those groups in a display as follow :

group_name, member, objectclass.
blabla, blibli, group
bleble, bloblo, user

here's how i can get all the Groups :
$path_to_group = "OU=STD, OU=GROP,OU=bigOU, OU=net, OU=cl"
$groups = Get-ADGroup -SearchBase $path_to_group -filter {GroupCategory -eq "Security"}

then i loop over the groups to get the members as follow
      foreach($group in $groups)
            Get-ADGroupMember -identity $group

do i get all groups in an OU with the filter : -filter {GroupCategory -eq "Security"}
or do i need to change or add another "GroupCategory". ?

how can i arrange a display as already discribed.

group_name, member, objectclass.
blabla, blibli, group
bleble, bloblo, user

thank you in advance.
