Adfind from

adfind -root -f "name=michael b. smith" memberof

Will list all the groups of which "Michael B. Smith" is a member. If you
want to separate security groups from distribution groups, your query
gets a little more complicated. See

For more information.

Subject: [exchangelist] DLs that a User Belongs to


Is there a quick and dirty way of finding out what distribution lists
that a user is in, not using ESM or ADUC.
Is there a command line utility available.?
Ie: Given the user name and it will list out all the DL that they belong
