Converting Distribution to Security Groups...
Posted on 2004-09-08
We have a Multiple Domains with mixed mode network. Our Mail server is E5.5 and we most our exchange sites are upgraded to e2k.Only few server needs upgrade including our server. We have lot Distribution lists.
Now when a new user comes in I want to assign Share access rights, Printer access & adding into DL in one shot. For this I want to convert all DLGroups into security groups.
So that I can assign permission for printers & Files. As well as he will be the part of DL.
By adding him into the DL I can achieve all this.
I just want to know there are any issues in converting the Distribution lists groups type to Security groups.
And should in future shd I go ahead and use security groups for double purpose…(Assign permissions as well as DL)…
Please let me why we have specific Distribution group If my case is possible….
