IFMEMBER (Resource Kit)
Count the NT Workgroups that the current user is in.
IFMEMBER [options] WorkGroup [ WorkGroup2 WorkGroup3...]
/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.
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
