While researching for a logon script setup for mapping network printers using Windows PowerShell, I thought of using the Windows native tool printui.dll for the actual printer mappings.
However, I was`nt quite sure how to check for a users` group membership in Active Directory. This sure can be accomplished with a tool like Quest`s PowerShell Commands for Active Directory. However, installing this on every domain computer wasn`t an option.
Then I found Andy Grogan`s PowerShell function for determining AD group membership.

Tested with Windows PowerShell v 1.0/2.0 and Windows XP/Vista/7.
