Domain local group does not appear on domain member computers
Posted on 2004-08-25
1. I have a printer that is attached to a workstation and would like to share it by granting access to a Domain Local Group. However, at the workstation, Domain Local Group do not appear to be available for selection under security tab when I try to share it. But Domain Global Group does show up.
I thought that Domain Local Group are available within the domain only so that all the domain members should be able to see them.
2. Can a Global Group be a member of another Global Group? I cannot make it what way, but it seems that a Global Group can be a member of Domain Local Group.
Lastly, if I have a folderresiding on another machine which is a domain member, what is the best way to share it. I was thinking of creating a Domain Local Group and granting rights to this group, then, add the already established Global Group to this Domain Local Group, but then I got stuck with the issue in #1...
