    Hello,

    I am trying to change my own created groups scope and type. However, the fields are greyed out. I run AD as administrator.

    Any suggestions that causing the problem? Is there a restriction in domain policy?

    Regards,
    Antons

    What exactly are you trying to change? Do you have any nested groups etc?

    I am trying to change from global groups to local domain groups and the way back. These groups are new groups and they are not nested.

    Thanks,
    Antons

    Probably going to need some more information, what's your setup like, domain functional level etc? When did you create the groups etc, what's in the groups currently etc.

    Thank you for the help. I have created the home network using vmware. The network consists of domain controller, terminal server and xp client workstation. I have created global and local domain groups in AD for testing them. I also wanted to change the scope just for practise. However, it is greyed out. I wanted to figure out what is wrong myself, but i could not. I can delete the group and create it with the different scope, but it is not what i want.

    Do i need to activate domain features in a first place?


    Regards,

    Thanks sparky.

    It was functional level. It was set to 2000. I have changed to 2003 and it is fine now.
