I am currently doing some authentication in Active Directory.
Our AD is running in Windows 2008 Server and I manage to log-in based in our AD. However I also want to get the group where the user belongs. but I don't know how. Can anyone help me?

here is the authentication in AD I copied...

<%@ Language="VBScript" %>

Option Explicit
Response.Buffer = True  

'// 1. Form Validation
Dim Submit, UserName, Password, Domain, Result, Message
Submit = "Authenticate"

'Assume Failure
Application("Error")= true 

If Submit = "Authenticate" Then
     response.write("autenthication <br>")
    'Get the input from your HTML form
    UserName = Request.Form("UserName")
    Password = Request.Form("Password")
    Domain = Application("Domain")
  Session("usern") = UserName
    'Call the AuthenticateUser() function to do the verification process
    Result = AuthenticateUser(UserName, Password, Domain)

    If Result Then
        'If user exist, then redirect to success page
 	'login success
	Application("Error")= false
        Response.Redirect ("success.asp")
        'If user don't exist, redirect to error page
	'login failed
	Application("Error")= true 
        Response.Redirect ("../")
    End If
End If

'// 2. Authenticate Function
Function AuthenticateUser(UserName, Password, Domain)
    Dim strUser, strPassword, strQuery, oConn, cmd, oRS

    'Assume Failure
    AuthenticateUser = false

    strQuery = "SELECT cn FROM 'LDAP://" & Domain & "' WHERE objectClass='*'"
    Set oConn = server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
        oConn.Provider = "ADsDSOOBJECT"
        oConn.Properties("User ID") = UserName
        oConn.Properties("Password") = Password
	oConn.Properties("Groups") = "SALES"
        oConn.Properties("Encrypt Password") = true
        oConn.open "ADProvider", strUser, strPassword
    Set cmd = server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
    Set cmd.ActiveConnection = oConn
    cmd.CommandText = strQuery
    On Error Resume Next
    Set oRS = cmd.Execute

    If oRS.bof OR oRS.eof Then
        AuthenticateUser = False
        AuthenticateUser = True
    End if

    Set oRS = Nothing
    Set oConn = nothing
End Function
