    VB script - List all user groups Help

    VBS - List all user groups

    Hello forum

    I have plans to replace our login script (currently written in Kix) with a VBS script.This script (the new) is about to be completed. But in my tests, I realized that the code that I use to list the groups, lists only groups in the "member" of the properties of the user.

    The code is as follows:

    Code:
    Select All 
    Set ADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo") 
    Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName) 
    strGroupsUser = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf)) 
    wscript.echo strGroupsUser
    Using the nesting groups (AGG-DL-P), I link access to certain shares to groups that do not appear on this tab, but the user is a member (through the interlocking groups) . Under Server 2003, the utility DsGet (with the proper parameters) can make this work.

    Beginner in this language, I would like to know if there is a piece of code VBS, to be able to retrieve the list of all groups which the user is a member.
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Note: If there is another way to do what I want to do, I am open to any proposal

    Knowing that as a group, you can also access the memberOf property, it will have set up a recursive code.

    This could give something like this:

    Code:
    Select All 
    Set ADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo") 
    Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName) 
    strGroupsUser = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf)) 
    For each grp in CurrentUser.MemberOf 
    seekGrp(grp) 
    Next 
    
    wscript.echo strGroupsUser 
    
    Sub seekGrp(groups) 
    Set objG = GetObject("LDAP:\\cn=" & groups & ",DC=...") 
    For Each grp in objG.MemberOf 
    strGroupsUser = strGroupsUser & grp 
    seekGrp(grp) 
    Next 
    End Sub

    A test, I wrote without accepting the execution. But I think the idea is there.

    Thanks For your Quick Reply
    I am studying your code.

    To begin with, I do not know if it's a mistake, but I replaced this

    Code:
     
    Select All 
    Sub seekGrp(groups) 
    Set objG = GetObject("LDAP:\\cn=" & groups & ",DC=...")
    by

    Code:
    Select All 
    Sub seekGrp(groupe) 
    Set objG = GetObject("LDAP://"& groups)
    as group returns a value of this type = CN = name of the group, OR = xxx, xxx OR = DC = foo, DC = lan

    Once this change of fact, when I come to the second loop, I get an error:
    Error: This object is not a collection
    Code: 800A01C3
    And here I do not know how to solve this problem.

    For the first remark, that is what I said: I have not tested

    Otherwise, I think the problem is triggered, occurs when the group does not belong to another group. We can solve this with the following correction:

    Code:
    Select All 
    Sub seekGrp(groupe) 
    Set objG = GetObject("LDAP:\\cn=" & groups & ",DC=...") 
    if IsArray(objG.MemberOf)   then 
    For Each grp in objG.MemberOf 
    strGroupsUser = strGroupsUser & grp 
    seekGrp(grp) 
    Next 
    end if 
    End Sub

    Re: VB script - List all user groups Help

    It's perfect, the code that you did work well.

    I still have 1 questions With this code, I can list the groups that are in the "Member" and groups that I describe as "second level". If I want to go further in search of groups I suppose, I must create another loop, but the place? I met the day code (code to search for a group of "" the first and second level "depending on the user logged in):

    Code:
    Select All 
    Set ADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo") 
    Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName) 
    strGroupsUser = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf)) 
    For each grp in CurrentUser.MemberOf 
    seekGrp(grp) 
    Next 
    
    wscript.echo strGroupsUser 
    
    Sub seekGrp(groupe) 
    Set objG = GetObject("LDAP://"& groupe) 
    if IsArray(objG.MemberOf) then 
    For Each grp in objG.MemberOf 
    strGroupsUser = strGroupsUser & vbcrlf & LCase(grp) 
    seekGrp(grp) 
    Next 
    End if 
    End Sub
