    This works but theres a further issue created when members of the group are infact more groups… Is there a way to then count the users within those in the same script. i.e. count the members and members of subgroups?

    Hi Team,

    it shows, distinguishedName, name, objectClass, objectGUID, SamAccountName, SID.

    If I want to display only Name then which switch i’ve to use.

    Thank You.
