I know, that there is NetUserGetGroups function.
But the situation is possible: user A -> group C -> group B.
Using NetUserGetGroups function I receive group C.
How to find out, to what groups the group C belongs?

Being that global groups can only contain users, and local groups can only contain users or global groups, I believe your setup is as follows (please correct if I am wrong).

user A - global group C - local group B

In order to find all the groups that C belongs to, you will need to perform a NetLocalGroupEnum to enumerate all the local groups on the server, then for each local group obtained, you will need to perform a NetLocalGroupGetMembers call in order to determine if the global group C exists in the local group.

If you require code for this example then just ask.

Regards,
Russell

EgorovAlex,

Take a look at this set of free components:

NT Specific Components


The TNetServer component allows you to connect to local or remote servers and  enumerate, add and delete users and groups.  It also allows you to find the primary domain controller (PDC) for a domain, list trusted domains, and force full and partial replications across the domain.

The TNetUser component allows you to examine and change the various properties for an NT user account.  It also allows you to add and remove users from global and local groups.

The TNetLocalGroup and TNetGlobalGroup component allows you to examine and change the various properties for NT groups.  It also allows you to add and remove users from the groups.
