Hi EE

Wondering if anyone has had the need to report on how many group members exist for certain AD groups.  I need to set a task to report the total amount of AD group members for five groups and wanted to see if anyone had a PS script they can share.

The ideal output would be the total amount of users and group name .

If it's just member count then you can use following code..

C:\group.txt should contain the group names which you want to lookup.
Import-Module Activedirectory
GC C:\group.txt | %{
	New-Object PSobject -Property @{
	Group = $_
	UserCount = (Get-ADGroupMember $_ -Recursive | Measure).Count
	}
}| Select Group,UserCount
