HOWTO: Search Group Names in Active Directory using wildcards

If you want to find a group in Active Directory but can't remember the whole name, you can use wildcards to assist in your search... here's how:

In Active Directory Users and Computers:
1. Find
2. Use the Find drop down list and change to Custom Search
3. Advanced tab
4. Enter in your LDAP query, for example:

name=* Managers
name=UK Company *

To query multiple attributes you can use operaters like &, , !, etc.
