I have another questions regarding AD groups.

I know it is proper to assign Domain Local Groups to the shared resources and then assign Global Groups to the Domain Local Groups.

If I am running in Mixed Mode Single domain environment what would be the norm.  Just to create Global Groups and assign them to the shared resources because DL groups are utilized from what I understand in Mixed mode only native mode.

Thanks

In that case, simply use local groups on the machine that hosts the resource; that's the "original" version.
Do you still need to run in mixed mode, that is, do you still have NT4 BDCs left?

So in the case of a dedicated file server, use the local group from that file server since it hosts all the resources.  Assign that group to the share, set permissions, and then add the global groups to the local group.


not any more..  we are now all W2k

Exactly.
If you're all W2k as far as DCs are concerned, you can switch to native mode and use the domain local groups (which have the advantage of being accessible on every machine, unlike the real local groups).
Note that switching to native mode does *not* keep you from having NT4 member servers or workstations in your domain; it will only keep you from having NT4 *DCs*.

As I said: nothing to look out for that I'm aware of, except NT4 BDCs. No procedure to follow, you simply switch over.
