I´ve yet to see one quick and smooth description on how to retrieve all users from an AD group in windows in text form so I thought I´d present a simple solution here.

The tricky thing is to get the complete “ad”-object stringthingy for the group to use in the query but you can do this quite simply by first running the following query in the command prompt:

dsquery group -name YOURGROUPNAME

This will give you a string with a full object path


This you can now use in the following query:

dsget group "YOUR COMPLETE AD STRING" -members -expand

And you will get a resulting list of all member objects in the group.
