  • Active directory search group info

    Hi

    Id like to search AD for descriptions that are in a group in order to find the purpose of the group

    e.g. Group: IE-acc-1432 contains description "allow internet access"

    So I want to search all groups I would search for description "internet"
    and then find the group.

    I cant see this under advanced find in AD.

    with hundreds of groups with near meaningless names Id like to search for the group description

    Thanks for reading

    In 2008R2 (only one I have available) you have a "starts with" or "ends with" option, but not "contains" so I think you are out of luck

    However, I strongly recommend a group renaming plan to make names more meaningful
