Last Modified: 2016-10-21
I am typing In the following command get-aduser username -properties memberof | select-object  {$_.memberof}  I was hoping to get the following output. For some reason I am not. I am using a windows 7 machine and have done the import-module active directory.


I was wondering why is this not occurring here.

By default you get the DN of groups from memberof attribute.. To get names of group try...
Get-ADuser username -properties memberof | %{$_.memberof | Get-Adgroup | select Name}

Open in new window

Or use
Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership username | Select Name

Open in new window

If you are trying to export result, I would suggest you to use the custom property option so you can export all required properties of user.. Example..
Get-ADuser username -properties memberof | Select Name,SamaccountName,@{N="memberof";E={$_.memberof | Get-Adgroup | select -exp Name}}

Open in new window
