      I am trying the Quest AD tools for the first time. I wrote my first script and I want to see how I can make it better.

      $CitrixGroups = Get-QADGroup -Name Citrix* | Select -Property Name |
      ForEach-Object {Add-Content -Path "U:\My Documents\Scirpts\Usernames.txt" -Value ""
      Add-Content -Path "U:\My Documents\Scirpts\Usernames.txt" -Value $_.name
      $Users = Get-QADUser -MemberOf $_.name
      Add-Content -Path "U:\My Documents\Scirpts\Usernames.txt" -Value ""
      Add-Content -Path "U:\My Documents\Scirpts\Usernames.txt" -Value $Users.SamAccountName

      Let me have it…
      This gave me a text document with the name of the group and then the user ID’s in that group, with a little spacing. Maybe we can make this into a tool…?

      See this post, is it something like what you are looking for? It seems to me you are wanting to expand the members of a group and save it to file.

      Just wanted to share that Get-QADGroupMember cmdlet can also be used to get all the User accounts in a group.
      This can be of relevance to improve the code in future :
      Get-QADGroupMember -identity CitriXGroup -Indirect | where {$_.type -match "user"}

      Thanks, but this assumes you know the group. My script if looking for all the groups with the Citrix at the begining. I have not had a chance to play with yours yet.
      I am stilll looking for ways to do my script better???
      Thanks again…

      perhaps this code will help you

      Get-QADGroup -Identity Citrix*| % {write-host "Group: $_"; Get-QADGroupMember -Identity $_ -Indirect -Type user;Write-host ""}

      by DexterPOSH at 2013-03-12 01:18:35

      Get-QADGroup -Identity Citrix*| % {write-host "Group: $_"; Get-QADGroupMember -Identity $_ -Indirect -Type user;Write-host ""}

      I just wanted to show that Get-QADGroupMember can be used to get the members of the group; You can always pipeline the output from Get-QADGroup to get the groups and then recursively get the members just like in the above code..
