Nested Security groups not working in AD
Posted on 2004-08-25
I am trying to nest one security group into another so I do not have to add each user manually again to the new group, which from my understanding is supported and actually recommended.
The project I am doing this for is to give our users a custom desktop depending on which group they are in. When I add the group to the custom desktop group, the users are not getting the icons in other words they are not showing as though they are in the group. I tested this by removing the nested group and placing my user in the top group and then the icons show up.
Any ideas on why the nested groups would not work, I can't find anything in google or MS site (big surprise). I am in a windows 2003 native mode AD environment.
