Multiple SharePoint Group Owners

Hello,

I've set up a sharepoint site for our team to use at work and am having problems restricting access for group membership permissions.

We have several user groups and would like to restrict the people who can add members to the group to a select few members (Rather than the whole group or just one person). I've tried selecting the "Admin" group - but this isn't in the GAL so SP rejects it as a valid user.

I then went down the route of setting up a global group, but when I selected it as the owner of the group, I got an error saying that "a global group cannot be the owner of a sharepoint group".

That being the case - how do I solve my problem I.E allow only 3 people to edit the membership of a sharepoint group. ?

Any help you can offer will be appreciated.

Thanks

Josh

Can you try adding your global AD group to a SharePoint group and then add the SharePoint group as the owner?
Also try creating a new SP group, say GrpOwner and add the users explicitly to the group. Then use this group as the owner of the other group?

Hi,
1. Go to Site permission
2. Open  your SharepoitGroup
3. Click on settings >> Go to Group settings
4. Here you will find a option.

Select Group Owner and make the 3 users owners of that group that you want them to edit the member ship

Thank for your response, I thought I had already tried creating a new group and assigning that as the group list owner, but it seems to have worked so obviously I hadn't!

Thanks for your help
