Hi all, im new to the whole powershell game, but im trying to set aside an hour of my day to do something with powershell… to try and learn
yesterday i though i was going to compare the members of an AD group with the members of an Exchange distribuition list
so i started off with
get-adgroupmember 'group' | select name
this will reture a list of names like this:
then (after spending some time downloading / installing exchange management tools) i did a
Get-DistributionGroupMember 'list' | select Name
and the results are the same:
ok then, all i have to do is to compare the two, or so i thought…
compare-object -referenceobject $ad -differenceobject $ex
the result of this produces something like this: (yes i have set the strips above as $ad and $ex)
what am i missing here?
if i save the output from $ad and $ex to files and compare the content of the textfiles, i get the result i wanted…. why cant i get that result onscreen?
