Groups

Hi

I have a few newbie questions

1) Is there a difference between a Group and a Secuirty Group

2) The statement "User accounts can be created in an OU, but they cannot be created in a specified security group, becuase unlike OUs, groups are not containers, they do not contain their members". Makes no sense to me, if they do cannot cotain members, what is going on when we e.g. add a user to the admin group, surely thats the same as adding a user to a group. Or as said above is group different to a security group.

3) If it's different when would you use a secuirty group

Groups can be Distribution or Security

Distribution groups are basically used fro grouping a set of users to send a common email
Set we can create a distribution group for HR department and send when sending an email user can just select the distribution group instead of selecting each and every user.

Security groups are distribution groups plus are used for administration. Like setting up permissions on a folder or Applications. Basically can restrict what user can do in a company depending upon his membership.

OU's are an altogether different thing. OU are used to separate objects. Like you can create an OU to put all users into it. On these use can write  group policies.
OU’s are like folder and subfolders under windows explorer
