Afternoon all,

I need to find any contacts in any distribution groups from AD. I know that Get-adgroupmember doesn't return contacts and I'm unsure as to the best way forward.

Get-ADObject -Filter {(objectclass -eq 'group')} -Properties Member

Open in new window

I know that'll pull the members within an object but it won't filter out only contacts. Any idea how to go about this? I've had a search and not found anything that filters contacts before the output.
