Hi,

I am a developer trying to sort something out in the absense of network support.

Basically, I have some users who are in a group - lets call it Group1.

I want to re-assign these users to Group2.

I have assigned the users to Group2 - but i cannot remove Group1.

When I attempt to remove Group1 from the User, i get a message saying that you cannot remove primary group.

I go to the Member Of tab - but the option to set the primary group is greyed out.

SO my question is, how do I remove Group1 from these users??

thanks in advance,

KS

Are these custom groups or built-in groups?

Check the users properties via Active directory users and computers. If this group Group1 is set as primary group then choose Domain users group and make it as primary group then try to remove it.
It will work.

Ok, I have worked it out.

Group2 was created under the Domain scope whereas Group1 was created under Global scope.

Thank you for your help,
