Group Structure


Can I create an OU at the root of the domain ( XYZ.local) and in that OU create or nest all of my Groups

This is what I mean.

I have a folder named art
I'm creating 2 groups named as follows

Group 1 (resourceart)
Group 2 (userart)

I go ahead and add the users to the Group named "userart" then nest userart into resoureart and finally on the folder NTFS permission add the group resoureart.

All of the above works correct, but I'm just wondering if I can create an OU named Groups and start to create all of my domain groups in it.

I think I should be able to, but just wanted to get confirmation before I do.

Thank for all of your help everyone.
