i just created a global "accounting" group and added the appropriate members.
the shared folder throws access denied error when trying to access it .

If i add each user individually then access is fine.
is there a time period for global groups to propagate to active directory?

Not likely - double-check your permissions.  Are you explicitly denying access to a local group that is tied to the global group?  Can you post the folder permissions here?

no there is no explicict denying of access just the removal of the everyone group from the share permissions.

basically i created a folder on the root of my server drive.
created a global group called accounting
added the appropriate members to the group then added the group to the permissions on the share with full access

accounting(mydomain/accounting)
