NetGroupEnum info  Overview  Group

The NetGroupEnum function retrieves information about each global group account.

Security Requirements

Only members of the Administrators or Account Operators local group can successfully execute NetGroupEnum.


    LPWSTR servername,

    DWORD level,

    LPBYTE *bufptr,

    DWORD prefmaxlen,

    LPDWORD entriesread,

    LPDWORD totalentries,

    LPDWORD resume_handle 



Pointer to a Unicode string containing the name of the remote server on which the function is to execute. A NULL pointer or string specifies the local computer.
Specifies one of the following values to return the level of information pointed to in the bufptr parameter.




Return group name. The returned buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_0 structures.


Return group name and comment. The returned buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_1 structures.


Return information about the group. The returned buffer points to an array of GROUP_INFO_2 structures.

Pointer to the return information structure is returned in the address pointed to by bufptr. The returned buffer should be deallocated using NetApiBufferFree.
Preferred maximum length, in 8-bit bytes of returned data.
Pointer to a DWORD that contains the actual enumerated element count.
Pointer to a DWORD that contains the total number of entries that could have been enumerated from the current resume position.
Pointer to a DWORD that contains a resume_handle, which is used to continue an existing global group search. The handle should be zero on the first call and left unchanged for subsequent calls. If resume_handle is NULL, then no resume handle is stored.


The NetQueryDisplayInformation function provides a very efficient mechanism for enumerating global group accounts. When possible, use that function instead of NetGroupEnum.

Return Values

If the function succeeds, the return value is NERR_Success.

If the function fails, the return value is one of the following error codes.




The user does not have access to the requested information.


The computer name is invalid.


More entries are available with subsequent calls.
