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

1) security groups are usually just referred to as groups - they are the same thing - distrubution groups are used for exchange mail lists etc

2) an OU is a container...it holds users and groups....they kind of "live" there. A group has members that are controlled by the security applied to a group.....you cannot create a user in a group, but you can join a user to a group.

3) security groups are used to control permissions on a user
