Server 2003 folder permissions

tmckinney01 asked
Last Modified: 2012-10-14
i was setting some folder security permissions and ran into an interesting problem.  I created universal security groups for different permission levels, i.e. "Folder XYZ Read Only".  In that group I added users who would need those permissions.  The problem came when I tried to add another security group ("Exec" for instance) as a member of the new group - those folks didn't get access.

I always thought you could add a group to another group for permission settings; am I wrong about that or am I doing something wrong?
