    Getting a list of users in global and local groups.

    I found this batch file on a newsgroup a while back, I'm trying to get a
    text file that shows all the users I have in my domain groups. It keeps on
    giving me a message of something like "group not found" (I'm not near a dc
    to give the exact error) I noted the line numbers in this string.

    Any ideas how to make this work ?

    Line 1@echo off
    Line 2 if exist c:\Groups.txt del c:\Groups.txt
    Line 3 for /F "tokens=*" %%* in ('net localgroup ^| find "*"') do call :Sub
    %%*
    Line 4 for /F "tokens=*" %%* in ('net groups /domain ^| find "*"') do call
    :Sub %%*
    Line 5 goto :eof
    Line 6 :sub
    Line 7 set name=%*
    Line 8 net group "%name:~1%" | find /i /v "comment" | find /i /v "members" |
    find /i /v "--------------" | find /i /v "completed successfully" >>
    c:\Groups.txt

    This looks like a batch file I designed for someone else
    last November. It works quite nicely, provided that you
    don't have any "poison" characters in your group names.
    To see for yourself, insert these lines immediately after
    Line 7 and report the result:

    echo Name=%name%
    pause

    It displays groups when adding the echo, however, it still responds
    with "the group name can not be found". Additionally, the groups.txt
    file is created, but nothing is written to it.

    Are you "Joe"?

    Post the exact batch file you're using!

    Yes, that is me at work..

    I posted the exact batch file in the original thread. I'm applying it on a
    Windows 2003 dc with the default groups.
    I did create a a test group and it echoed through along with all the others
    with the echo command you gave me.
    However, I just get a blank file in the root directory.

    Re: Getting a list of users in global and local groups.

    I beg to disagree. Your original post had the string
    "Line 1", "Line 2" at the beginning of each line. This
    batch file could not possibly work. I've been in this
    game for too long to consider something such as
    "The batch file looked like this". I need the real thing!

    Here you go...

    @echo off
    if exist c:\Groups.txt del c:\Groups.txt
    for /F "tokens=*" %%* in ('net localgroup ^| find "*"') do call :Sub %
    %*
    for /F "tokens=*" %%* in ('net groups /domain ^| find "*"') do
    call :Sub %%*
    goto :eof
    :sub
    set name=%*
    echo Name=%name%
    net group "%name:~1%" | find /i /v "comment" | find /i /v "members" |
    find /i /v "--------------" | find /i /v "completed successfully" >> c:
    \Groups.txt

    Re: Getting a list of users in global and local groups.

    The batch file you posted works very nicely on my machines.
    Here is a modified version you could try. You must remove
    the # characters that marks the start of each line.
    #@echo off
    #if exist c:\Groups.txt del c:\Groups.txt
    #set parm=Localgroup
    #for /F "tokens=*" %%* in ('net localgroup ^| find "*"') do call :Sub %%*
    #set parm=Group
    #for /F "tokens=*" %%* in ('net groups /domain ^| find "*"') do call :Sub
    %%*
    #notepad c:\Groups.txt
    #goto :eof
    #
    #:Sub
    #set name=%*
    #echo Group name: %name%
    #echo %parm% name: %name:~1% >> c:\Groups.txt
    #net %parm% "%name:~1%" | find /i /v "completed successfully" | more +6 >>
    c:\Groups.txt

    If this version still does not work then you must post the
    output generated by the following commands:
    net localgroup
    net localgroup administrators
    net groups /domain
    net groups /domain "domain admins"

    I ran the script, but all that pops up is one local group called
    _vmware_

    I cannot help you any further unless you're prepared to run
    the diagnostic stuff I mentioned in my last reply.
