Hello

We have one forest with multiple child domains. Forest root is kam.com, and we have emea.kam.com, apac.kam.com and usa.kam.com

I would like a group with all users, across the forest, in it. Is there such a thing as Forest Users or similar?

Running AD 2008.

Unfortunately no, you could create global groups in each domain and add members then nest those into the forestwide universal group.

Thanks

Hello

So create a global group in each domain containing Domain\Domain Users, and then nest that into a universal group?
