Powershell - get-adgroupmembers - cannot contact server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I went to use the following

    Import-Module ActiveDirectory
    Get-ADGroupMember -server -Identity "AU-TEAM Testing" | Select Name, SamAccountName, objectClass

    and get below.. Initially i thought it was because i was using PowerGui, but i tried with the normal win 7 powershell, same error. I tried with no -server, with -server with the domain name and the DC machine name.

    NB: Adexplorer, and the AD admin tools worked fine, so it is not as if the AD was not there.

    Now the DC is an old 2003 box.

    >> Is that the issue ?

    >> I did a google and could not find anything too useful. Anyone know of a sequence to test this ?
    One article referred to a adws service which is not installed on win 7 client.



    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Unable to contact the server. This may be because this server does not exist, it 

       is currently down, or it does not have the Active Directory Web Services running.,Microsoft.ActiveDirectory
