To be honest, I have never tried to run this command on windows, but
your problem is probably because membership of Domain Users is a bit
special. All users are, by default, members of Domain Users, but the
groups object does not show any members and the users do not have a
'memberOf' attribute pointing to Domain Users.

Or another way of saying the above, you have nothing to worry about,
unless you have done something silly like changing the users
'primaryGroupID' attribute.
