You can list the groups a user is a member of -

$ net user info adam -U adam
adam password:
CIS/IT Staff
HiLow Low Down
Web Developers
Intranet Calendar
Used Equipment
Morrison Industrial Equipment
Greenville Branch

See ftp://ftp.kalamazoolinux.org/pub/pdf/AbusingWin32.pdf and "man net"

However, listing the member of a group (going in the other direction)
doesn't appear to work yet.  Either in rpclient or using net.

rpcclient $> enumdomgroups
group:[Mail Managers] rid:[0x5e3]
group:[Traverse City Branch] rid:[0x58f]
group:[Accounting] rid:[0x57b]
group:[Mor-Value Parts] rid:[0x5c1]
rpcclient $> querygroup
Usage: querygroup rid [info level] [access mask]
rpcclient $> querygroup 5c1
rpcclient $> querygroup 0x5c1
rpcclient $> queryaliasmem domain 0x5c1
cli_pipe: return critical error. Error was Call timed out: server did
not respond after 10000 milliseconds
rpcclient $> queryaliasmem domain 5c1
cli_nt_session_open: cli_nt_create failed on pipe \samr to machine
littleboy.  Error was Call timed out: server did not respond after 10000
Could not initialise \PIPE\samr
rpcclient $>

and "net" simply doesn't appear to offer this facility.
