Need to create LDAP resource groups. We have SQL 2008 r2 enterprise and Windows Server 2003 active directory

I got an email last night from our SQL DB admin asking for the following. I am not sure how to respond, I am assuming he is talking about security groups in active directory. He is not here today to ask, but I want to respond intelligently. Here is his email;

"Need two new LDAP resource groups.

CitizensDB – ReadOnly
CitizensDB – FullAccess

In the end we need to add both user1 and myself in FullAccess, and add user2 to the ReadOnly group."

Are there special LDAP groups in active directory other then regular security groups I have heard about? What is the process to great groups like he is mentioning?

If this question is vague, how would you respond to him?

The first question to ask would be "what do members of these groups actually need to do?" All members of AD down to "domain members" by default have read access to AD.

ok the groups will be tied to a SQL 2008 database

one group will allow members read only the auther will allow the DBAs full access. IF you can give me advice on setting this up, I woudl appreciate it
