There are multiple groups with naming convention as XXXX_GPOAXXXX and XXXX_OUAXXXX and I am trying to search all of them using below script.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong and why it is not working?

Get-ADGroup -filter * | Where-Object {($_.name -match "_gpoadm*") -and ($_.name -match "_OUad*")} | select name

Thanks!!

You're looking for names that match both substrings. Use "-or" instead of "-and":
Get-ADGroup -filter * | Where-Object {($_.name -match "_gpoadm*") -or ($_.name -match "_OUad*")} | select name

Just like oBdA saidyou need the or operand

It's a rather common mistakes for people with no programming or advanced mathematics training.

Assume you have a condition called A and another called B.

if your looking for situations that satisfy A and B - in programming that means that you will receive true ONLY if both A AND B are true.

OR will result in true if either A OR B OR BOTH are true.

or if put in a table (T is TRUE F is FALSE)

(OR)     A   B      Result
            T    T       T
            T    F       T
            F    T       T
            F    F       F

(AND)     A   B      Result
               T    T       T
               T    F       F
               F    T       F
               F    F       F
