Adverse effects of changing group from Distribution to Security?
Posted on 2013-05-21
Quick question -
Had to make a shared folder for a management group, and instead of applying permissions one by one i wanted to use a group. While creating group I found it already existed, as a distribution group. This distro had the same users and uses the name i wanted to use. Obviously as a distribution group it would not be available to apply permissions with.
Went into AD and changed it from Distribution to Security. Permissions applied fine. Sent test email to distro and all members received it. Seems fine to me, but i want to ensure that i haven't missed any steps or could have something bad happen down the line.
Thanks in advance
