Searching Active Directory using wild cards

I do not often dabble in Active Directory, but today I learned something useful. Namely how to search for AD-groups and users using wildcard. A bit basic, indeed, but you learn something new every day. =)

Simply go to search > Advanced > Field > Group > Name and “is (exactly)” and then use * for wild card.

In the example below I have search for groups using the string *omain*. As you can see from the result, all groups listed contain “domain”.
