Powershell - Extract groups and users of a principal active directory group

Bernard Beaulieu 1 Reputation point


I would like to get something like this from AD :
AD GROUP ‘A child’
member ‘John D’
member ‘James B’
member ‘Joe D’
Member ‘Ma D’
AD GROUP ‘A child 2’
member ‘Mark T’
member ‘Mark M’

How can I get something like this (or better) using Powershell

I do not only want all the users from all the AD groups

Thank you,

    Use Get-ADGroupMember but don't use the -Recursive parameter.
