    Distribution Groups - export lists and members

    I need a small piece of information from you. I’m running 38 AD servers and 22 Exchange servers around 20 states. Now as it is spread all over, I wanted to know if there is any way I can export he distribution groups and the members to an organized csv or some other format? If yes, please post the procedure.

    Thank you.

    I have enever used but as per my research there is a command line utility named “AdFind” can help you with the same. You can get the same from here

    The filter for distribution groups would be (watch line wrapping, this is one line):
    (&(objectCategory=group)(!groupType:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2147483648))

    Apart from this you can also retrieve the the member multi-valued attribute, which would be a collection of the Distinguished Names of all direct members (ignoring group nesting).

    RE: Distribution Groups - export lists and members

    Hey guys, i use a vb script like that:

    On Error Resume Next

    Set objGroup = GetObject _
    ("LDAP://cn=GroupName,ou=someou,dc=fabrikam,dc=com")
    objGroup.GetInfo

    arrMemberOf = objGroup.GetEx("member")

    WScript.Echo "Members:"
    For Each strMember in arrMemberOf
    WScript.echo strMember
    Next

    save it with a name like test.vbs and run from a command prompt
    cscript.exe test.vbs >out.txt

    Hope it helps.
