Powershell and Active Directory : Find empty Active Directory Groups using Powershell.

Hi Everyone.

Finally i come back to India and it is always love to be at home.

My today’s task was to create a list of all empty active directory groups, all groups those are not having any members.

As you know, i don’t like to do the manual tasks, so i decided to use powershell to accomplished this.

Lets do it.

Import Active Directory module.

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Once, Active Directory Module is loaded, run the below command.


Get-ADGroup -Filter * -Properties Members  | where { -not $_.Members} | select Name

Now , this will give you the list of all empty groups.

Now we have two groups “*ASKLAILA” and “*Hello Sir” as a result of the above command.

Now lets cross-verified our result.

I hope you find this useful.
