    Hey all

    Anybody else had problems understanding the differences between AD security groups ie: universal, domain local and global?:blink

    Specifically- why not just have one group scope that can do everything?

    Currently studying for the 70-290


    Thanks.

    Thats what a universal group is for.

    If you have ever been the admin of a network with over 6000 users with multiple domains you will be glad of having limitations on what some security groups can do. 8)

    Also you need to consider old NT domains...

    That would take away the power of Sys Admins to restrict access to resources to certain groups of people.

    It is recommended that resources (shares, printers etc) are assigned permissions in a domain local group.

    Users should be a member of one or more global groups which are then added to the domain local group to be granted the resource permissions. This way you do not need to set up users individually with permissions and it makes an admins life easier if a person leaves or a new person joins the organisation. You only need to say add Joe to the Sales Global Group and he will be granted access to the same resources as all the other sales people.

    Managers may need access to other resources which sales people are not privy to, hence you could have a managers global group and add that to the domain local group which contains the more private resources.
