Find What Groups a User In AD is a Member Of

Here is how for one person:

get-aduser foo.user -properties MemberOf |Select -ExpandProperty memberof

or use the newer command:

Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership foo.user | select name

or use the older command-line:

net user foo.user /domain

Here is how for a group in an OU:

get-aduser -filter * -searchbase "ou=ou-name-here,dc=company-domain,dc=com" -properties MemberOf |Select -ExpandProperty memberof

or you need just the Name and MemberOf:

get-aduser -filter * -searchbase "ou=ou-name-here,dc=company-domain,dc=com" -properties MemberOf |Select samaccountname,memberof

And if you need to put the whole thing together:

get-aduser -filter * -searchbase "ou=ou-name-here,dc=company-name,dc=com" -properties Memberof |Select samaccountname,@{n="Groups";e={(Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $_).name}} |ft -wrap

Or if you need just the accounts that are more than the "Domain Users" group:

get-ADuser -Filter * -searchbase "ou=ou-name-here,dc=company-domain,dc=com" -properties Memberof |where memberof -ne "Domain Users" |Select samaccountname,@{n="Groups";e={(Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $_).name}}

But maybe miss off the Guest account:

get-ADuser -Filter * -searchbase "ou=Disabled Users,dc=jenoptik-inc,dc=com" -properties Memberof |where {($_.memberof -ne "Domain Users") -and ($_.samaccountname -ne "Guest")} |Select samaccountname,@{n="Groups";e={(Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $_).name}}

And to take this one step further, if you need to remove the user from all the account's groups, then:

Get-ADUser -filter * -searchbase "ou=ou-name-here,dc=company-domain,dc=com" -Properties MemberOf |where {($_.memberof -ne "Domain Users") -and ($_.samaccountname -ne "Guest")} |ForEach-Object{$_.MemberOf |Remove-ADGroupMember -Members $_.DistinguishedName -Confirm:$false}
