Q

Is there a utility that will total the number of users in a specified group in Active Directory?

Expert Laura E. Hunter provides a reader with a script totaling how many users are in a specified Active Directory group.

Is there a utility that will total the number of users in a specified group in Active Directory? I need to know how many users are in one of our groups but I wanted to know if there was a utility to count them instead of doing it manually.

You can easily retrieve this information using VBScript, as follows:

Set objGroup = GetObject _ ("LDAP://cn=Scientists,ou=R&D,dc=NA,dc=fabrikam,dc=com") objGroup.GetInfo

arrMemberOf = objGroup.GetEx("member") WScript.Echo("Group members: " & arrMemberOf.length)
