Windows: Get all groups a user is memberof by dsquery/dsget recursive

Hi,

The “net” builtin commands of Windows have some limitations: It truncates groupnames longer then 20 Characters, it cannot resolve group in group memberships….

dsget/dsquery are (LDAP) command line interfaces for active directory. For using these commands you have to install the Windows RSAT Tools (Remote Server Administration Tools).

Some examples.

Show your distinguished name by samaccount name

C:\> dsquery user -samid %USERNAME%

Or with by a custom LDAP filter

dsquery * -filter "(&(objectClass=User)(sAMAccountName=%USERNAME%))

Get specific LDAP attributes of an User

C:\> dsquery * "CN=myUser Account,OU=UsersOU,DC=yourDomain,DC=org" -attr sAMAccountName displayName department

Get all LDAP attributes of an User

C:\> dsquery * "CN=myUser Account,OU=UsersOU,DC=yourDomain,DC=org" -attr *

Get all distinguished name of Groups you are a member of

C:\> dsquery user -samid %USERNAME% | dsget user -memberof

and more readable with just the sAMAccountname of the groups

C:\> dsquery user -samid %USERNAME% | dsget user -memberof | dsget group -samid

Get distinguished name of a group by sAMAccountname

C:\> dsquery group -samid YourGroupName

Get all members of a Group by its sAMACcountname

C:\> dsquery group -samid YourGroupName | dsget group -members

and recursive if the group contains other groups as member

C:\> dsquery group -samid YourGroupName | dsget group -members -expand

and more readable with more details

C:\> dsquery group -samid YourGroupName | dsget group -members -expand | dsget user -display  -samid -email
