Quickly Retrieving Local Admins Group Members

Hi folks:

Just wanted to share with you the PowerShell code that can be used to retrieve members of the local admins group on your Windows server or client machine. I found it at this link and found it extremely useful.

The code to retrieve it can be

Get-WmiObject win32_groupuser |Where-Object { $_.GroupComponent -match ‘administrators’ } | ForEach-Object {[wmi]$_.PartComponent }

This provides detailed report as below (which even includes SID for each admin user):


Finally you can always adjust section { $_.GroupComponent -match ‘administrators’ } to any other group name in order to retrieve appropriate members.

Enjoy!
