Hi

From the AD console's view menu choose "Advanced Features"
Now on the Distribution's group properties should appear a security tab
From here you can add the security group you desire with the needed rights

I believe you are asking about actually making a Distribution Group a member of a Security Group. This is certainly possible and you should be able to do it by going to 'Members' on the Distribution List, pressing Add and entering the name of the Security Group.

For DL email to also go to the security group, the security group needs to be mail-enabled.

Hi

in this case then you should add on the "Members of" tab for the distribution group the needed security group

tdor, you got it the wrong way around :)

You want to make the Security Group a Member of the Distribution Group. You can do this two ways, and they both do exactly the same thing. If you go to the Distribution Group, 'Members' tab, enter the name of the Security group and press OK, this is EXACTLY the same as going to the Security Group, 'Members Of' tab and adding the name of the Distribution Group.
