    Is there an official bug in Get-AdGroupMember?

    If you use this commandlet on a group which contains members from a diffrent domain it throws an error.

    Is this a bug? and if so will MS fix it?

    I think you be be interested in this thread that i found by google searching your problem.
    It discusses the problem at length and has a work around.

      @ TomBaker
      Thanks for the reply,

      My main problem is with the commandled not working. I already have my own work around, but the correct way would be to use the commandled. I just want to know if MS is aware of the bug and if they are going to fix it.

      This is my work around:

       
         $members= (Get-ADGroup -Identity $groupSID -Properties members).members
         if ($members) {
              foreach ($member in $members)
              {
                  if ($member.contains("ForeignSecurityPrincipals")) {
                          $pos = $member.IndexOf(",")
                          [string] $memberSID = $member.substring(3,$pos - 3)
                  }
             }
        }

    I just ran Get-ADGroupMember on a group in my child domain that contains computers from both the child and parent domain with no errors. Maybe it is an issue with an older version of PowerShell? I am running 5.0 RTM
