I'm not the droid you're looking for.

comment How can I view information for domain groups from the command line with just core Windows utilities?
Now that's the kind of solution I was looking for. Portable to systems without RSAT or other add-ons, easy to remember, and pretty user friendly to boot! Only negative I see is that it seems a bit limited in functionality - for example, I don't appear able to view users' group memberships (reverse of what I was asking for, I know, but still handy). Otherwise, a much preferable workaround compared to the other options I've seen here or elsewhere thus far!

@TheCleaner Oh, and output I'm looking for is pretty much just a list of group members. Ideally, I should be able to get any other details normally available via NET GROUP (i.e.: find a workaround for the character limit, or another built-in tool that does the same job without such limitation) but for now I'm just looking for members.

@EliadTech Given short enough group names, NET GROUP works just fine on client systems if you use the /DOMAIN parameter - it queries the appropriate (or default) DC. My problem is, I'm not in an environment where less-than-20-character domain group names are common.

Looks like this may or may not be a somewhat more straightforward avenue worth exploring. Unfortunately, I'm not on a good test system now.

Ok... a little less portable across systems (e.g.: I was really hoping to get something I could easily carry in my head - not a thumb drive) but definitely worth at least dropping the -1. Can't help but think there should be an easier way, but probably isn't.

#2 - Exactly what I'm trying to avoid. #1 & 3 - Great, but they only work for the currently logged-in user. (Or another user who's available to log in for Run As.) I'll often need to get information about other users, and in most cases (though perhaps not quite clearly spelled out in my question) I'm really looking for information on groups instead of users. Example: "MyReallyLongDomainGroupName" is a member of the local Admins group. So, who has admin access to the system? Or "AnotherVerboseDomainGroupName" is in some file share permissions - who has access to that share?

Pretty sure the AD module comes in RSAT. I'm looking to do this on systems where RSAT may not be available. Down-voted this answer due to its dependency on RSAT, which was explicitly called out in the original question.

@TheCleaner The PS cmdlets that fulfil this need are a component of RSAT. Where I need to do this, I cannot count on RSAT being available.

DS tools are a component of RSAT. I'm trying to find solutions that aren't dependent upon RSAT or any tools not in a default Windows 7 installation. Down-voted this answer due to RSAT dependency (which was specifically called out in the original post) and updated my question to also exclude other tools not included in the core OS.

Command not found on Win7 SP1. I'm guessing you need RSAT installed?

This depends on which SQL database application you're using, and how it's configured. At the very least, you will need to configure a user account in the database for the user.
