Find Empty Groups in Active Directory
In this guide, you will learn how to find empty Active Directory groups using the AD Pro Toolkit.
Empty groups are groups that have no members.
For example, I have a group named “it_manage_users” and when I look at the members it is empty.
Follow these steps to find all empty groups.
Step 1. Open the AD Cleanup tool
Step 2. Click on Filters and select Groups Without Members.
Uncheck “Show Users”
Click the run button to view the report.
In this example, I have 76 groups that have no members. Several of them are built-in groups that have no members by default. The other groups are ones that administrators have created and are empty.
To export the list click on the Export button and choose the export format.
If you would like to have a delete option within the AD Cleanup tool then send us a feature request.
