IFMEMBER (Resource Kit)

Count the NT Workgroups that the current user is in.



syntax

      IFMEMBER [options] WorkGroup [ WorkGroup2 WorkGroup3...]



options:

        /verbose or /v   : print all matches.

        /list    or /l   : print all groups user is a member of

The %ERRORLEVEL% return code shows how many of the listed workgroups the currently logged-in user is a member of.



Examples



IFMEMBER /v /l "MyDomain\Administrators"

IF ERRORLEVEL 1 echo This user is an Administrator



Notice that the syntax here is the opposite to normal in that



%ERRORLEVEL% = 1 = Success



with most other NT commands %ERRORLEVEL% = 1 = Fail/Error



The best way to utilise IFMEMBER is through conditional execution...



IFMEMBER Administrators || ECHO Error is 1 so [%Username%] is in Admin_WG



IFMEMBER Administrators && ECHO Error is 0 so [%Username%] is NOT in Admin_WG
