get-quadgroup and get-qadgroupmember: empty data when using -exportcsv (Powershell version 4)

I am attempting to create a csv file which grabs all the groups and membership from Active Directory to a csv file. My goal is to list all users and the groups that they are members of. This may not be the best script. If you have a suggestion for a different script, I would be glad to see your suggestions.

When I run this command in Powershell I can see all the groups.

Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement
get-qadgroup -Identity '* *' | foreach-object {
"`nGroup: $($_.name)"
get-qadgroupmember ($_)
}


However, when I add the -exportcsv command, the csv file is empty. I do see an error at multiple locations in the Powershell window while the command is running. The error is:

get-qadgroupmember : The trust relationship between the primary domain and the trusted domain failed.
At line:4 char:1
+ get-qadgroupmember ($_)

I think I fixed the trust relationship issue. There were some orphaned objects from an old domain. I ran the same script and now the file only has this listed:

#TYPE System.String
"Length"
"20"


What am I missing? It shows on the powershell window if I do not pipe it to a csv.

why are you not using the native comands

get-adgroup -Identity '* *' | select-object name | foreach-object {
     get-adgroupmember ($_)
}

The command you suggested above outputs the following error:

get-adgroup : The term 'get-adgroup' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path
was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

do you have the RSAT tools installed on that computer as it should have automatically done the 'import-module activedirectory '

I do not have RSAT installed. I am running the script on a Windows 2012 R2 server. Do I need that installed on the server where I am running the script?

I found a similar post to what you are suggesting (thanks for leading me in this direction).

The post is located here Powershell script Export list of all users and there group membership and export to CSV.

Now my question regarding this is how do I add more properties besides the DisplayName and memberof? For example, I would like to include the EmployeeId attribute that is in Active Directory.

This forum is awesome! Thanks for your help. I figured out the script with your guidance and the script found in another post. Here is the final version of the script (with the searchbase container names redacted).

Import-Module Activedirectory
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties DisplayName,EmployeeID,memberof -searchbase 'OU=Users,OU=WCNB,DC=wcnb,DC=local' | % {
  New-Object PSObject -Property @{
      UserName = $_.DisplayName
      EmployeeID = $_.EmployeeID
      Groups = ($_.memberof | Get-ADGroup | Select -ExpandProperty Name) -join ","
      }
} | Select UserName,EmployeeID,Groups | Export-Csv C:\Reports\ADreport.csv -NTI

Thanks for your assistance in pointing me in the right direction. I had to install the AD feature on the server where I was running the script. After that I was able to create the script that I listed in the comments.
