Report in Active Directory


D

Diane Walker

We have a Windows 2003 server. Is there a way to run a report for the users
in one particular group in Active Directory? Do you have to have Domain
Admin permission to run this type of report? Thanks.

do you just want to query the members of some group?

if yes, every authenticated user can query AD for info assuming permissions
are set correctly. AND authenticated users have a crap load of VIEW/READ
permissions

if not, can you be more specific about what you want?
