How to write only warnings to a text file from get command

I would like to capture all the warnings returned from get-distributiongroup command to a text file.

What is the syntax to do that?

It isn’t that straightforward, unfortunately. PowerShell can natively only capture the output stream to a text file - to capture the Warning stream you’d need a custom host.

In v3, it’s possible to redirect the Warning stream into the Output stream, so that you can thus get the warnings using something like Out-File, but that’d mix the warnings in with the normal output. Unless you directed the normal output to a different pipeline, I suppose…
