Domain ACSAdmin

I was reviewing groups in Active Directory and ran across ACSAdmin/Users/Guest Security groups.  Google searches don't turn up anything that describes these AD accounts.

What are these accounts?  Are they from legacy NT environments?  What do I need to know about these groups in general?

This is definitely not a Built-in Group in Active Directory. I have done a search and it appears that it relates to Cisco Admin account/group. This was probably created to have active directory authentication. See link below...

We did have a Cisco ASA a couple of years ago and used a client gui install from an Admin workstation.  If there are no Cisco devices on the network, I assume it would be ok to remove users from the groups and deleting them after a couple of days?  I guess leaving them wouldn't matter if they had no members.
Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
That is correct. These groups were probably created manually. You can verify this using the below command.

get-adgroup -identity <groupname> -properties whencreated | fl

Open in new window

Are there any users in these groups? If there are what you could do as a test is removed them from the group (see if they complain about access) if they do add them back to the group and don't delete it. If you don't hear anything for a week or so you can remove the group.
