downside of using AD groups
Posted on 2010-01-08
So here's a couple downsides of using AD groups to secure a sharepoint site. I'm wondering if anyone has a workaround...
1. Site Users Web Part only displays the AD group; it doesn't expand the membership to show you individual users like it does for SharePoint groups
2. In Word, Excel, etc when you want to see the members of the team site,again you only see the AD group, not the individual members!
Basically the common thread between these 2 is an inability to expand out the AD group membership (both in Site Users Web part, or Office Documents. Has anyone figured out away to deal with this insufficiency, and is it perhaps addressed in SP 2010?
