  1. You can retrieve a list of users from a Security or Distribution Group in domain by using DSget tool – a new tool introduced in Windows 2003. This tool and other related tools ships with Windows 2003 CD.

    Let’s say you need to gather a list of users (+nested groups) from a domain group. This is bit easy. You can use the following command to accomplish the goal:

    dsget group “DN_of_group” -members -expand > userlist.txt

    The output will be saved in userlist.txt

    This is the sample output saved in userlist.txt

    “CN=Shan Dallis,OU=Users,DC=test,DC=local”
    “CN=Tapihe C Mdwa,OU=Users,DC=test,DC=local”

    and so on…
