AD Object Type

How can I find out if an object is a user or group?

Say I do a get-acl and i see…

domain\IT GROUP

Is there a command to query AD to see that the first one’s type is user and the 2nd one’s is a group?

Get-ADObject outputs among other stuff the ObjectClass

Ahhhhh that was too easy! Thanks for that…

Works just like I needed it to

((Get-ADObject -filter *) | ?{$ -like “admibistrator”}).objectclass

If you move your filter to the cmdlet it might be faster if you’re lucky

(Get-ADObject -filter {Name -like "admibistrator"}).objectclass

Even faster…thanks again sir!
