I'm using windows 8 connected to a domain

I wish to view the users and groups of an ad security group I'm not the owner of this group The command.

net group /domain TheGroupName

shows the direct users of that group but does not show the groups within the group.

As an alternative to the windows 8, i also have remote access to a windows server 2008 r2 and am an admin for that machine but not an admin for the domain. The program dsget is not shown
