Windows Group Membership Checker

By Richard Doering,

Introduction :

A script to reveal which logins have access to your sql server via windows groups.

If you use Windows Authentication and have Windows groups as logins this script can help.
It reveals members of Windows groups and their Server permissions.

This is particularly handy if you're not the network administrator or dont have access to the Active Directory tools.

Hope it helps someone...
