Quick 50 points guys.

Is it generally not good practise to use Brackets () when naming security groups.

Like in active directory when creating a new group and naming it, should one use brackets in the name.
I was thinking of creating groups with names like:-

Server Access (Datacenter)
Server Access (Headquarters)

If its not advisable, what about:-

Server Access - Datacenter
Server Access - Headquarters


Just wanted to know if a naming convention should be followed when creating groups and adding members/users to the group!

Thanks folks!

but to answer the question illegal charecrers for groups are the same as for files and folders :)

A group can contain any uppercase or lowercase characters except the following:

"   /    \    [    ]    :    ;    |    =    ,    +    *    ?    <    >
