=============================================================

Part 2 - Introduction
After reviewing Part 1 - we now continue to Part 2 - preparing and running the scripts for local AD and local Exchange.

If you are after the preparation and running of the scripts for Azure AD and Exchange Online, please go to Part 1 of these tutorials.

Group Membership Pack for Office 365, Local AD and Exchange
This pack of ten PowerShell scripts will generate csv reports of ALL groups and their members for -
Local AD and Exchange On-premises, including dynamic distribution groups
Azure AD, and Exchange Online, including dynamic distribution groups
Office 365 Groups (Unified Groups).
I have also included scripts to query and export all the groups a single user is a member of in -
Local AD and Azure AD.
Download the Group Membership Pack Link

Group and User Attributes
All my scripts export the most important attributes of both the group and the members, for example, whether the group is synced from on-premises, the email address of the group, whether the groups is public or private (for Unified Groups), etc.

Filtering the reports
Reports are useless if you don't know how to get the information you need.
If you don't really understand how to filter information in csv files in Excel, now is the time to learn.
It is strongly recommended you are comfortable on filtering columns in Excel to get the best results.
I will be providing some tips on some filters to apply to get specific results, but it really is up to you to determine how to apply filters to get the information you need.

Pre-requisites - Local AD and Local Exchange

To run these PowerShell scripts for Local AD and Local Exchange, you must first connect to Exchange On-Premises. 

Note that the Exchange local server needs to import the Active Directory module in PowerShell, so the machine that the scripts run on must have the AD tools installed.

Note - You must have the directory - c:\reports - created prior to running the scripts or edit the $logpath variable in the scripts that generate the group membership reports.

Connect to Exchange On-Premises
Run the scripts from Exchange Management Shell from the Exchange server or a pre-configured Exchange admin machine. You also need to import the Active Directory module for local AD management.


=================================================================

Editing the scripts for log path change

Note that you only need to edit the scripts if you want your reports created in a different folder from the default - c:\reports.

To edit the default report location, perform the following.
Open the script in PowerShell ISE or your favourite script editing program.

Scroll down until you find the section with the variable - $logpath = "c:\reports"








Update the path (if needed), to the path you want your reports generated.








Repeat for all scripts and save the updated scripts for future use.

Confirm that the folder(s) exist on the computer you are running the scripts on.


=================================================================


Editing the script for Local Active Directory Group Membership that is scoped for a particular OU.

Preparation for the script - Local-AD-AllAdGroupsAndMembers-OU-v-1-x.ps1

For this script to target the specific Organizational Unit and the sub-OUs, you will need to update the script variable for the OU. The OU path needs to be in the Distinguished Name format.

The easiest way to do this is to go to Active Directory Users and Computers -
Select the OU that you want the script to query (it will query the sub-OUs as well)
Right click the OU - in this example, right click the OU named Exchange -
Select - Properties.
In the Properties dialogue box, select - Attribute Editor -
Scroll down to the attribute - distinguishedName - Double click the entry.
























Select the highlighted text and copy to a notepad file.










Below you can see the Original script









Copy the Distinguished Name from the notepad file and paste into the script to update the script.

Below you can see the script updated with the distinguished name of the OU









Save the script for later use.


=================================================================

Generating and analyzing the reports

Connect to Local Exchange to run the reports for local AD and local Exchange.

Office 365 - Exchange Online - (Part 1)
- Note that you only run the scripts starting with - Office 365

Exchange Local and AD Local (Part 2)
- Note that you only run the scripts starting with - Local

Select your script -















Process for running the scripts (Local AD and Exchange On-premises)
Open PowerShell and connect to local Exchange (use pre-requisite steps at the top of this article)
Change to the directory that the scripts are located.
Type in the script name - 
Example - Local-AD-AllAdGroupsAndMembers-OU-v-1-x.ps1
Press enter -
The script will run and generate the csv report by default to 'c:\reports' or the folder you updated the script to.

Analyzing and filtering the reports -
Apply filters to each of the csv reports to determine the information you need.
Examples of popular filters to apply to reports will be included with each of the script details below.
Remember to clear the filter in Excel before applying a different filter again.
Multiple filters can be applied.
