Hey guys,

I'm tasked with looking at Active Directory "Groups" in our environment.

My question is, is it okay to have a user and computer account in a security group?

I'm finding both "user and computer" accounts within the same group and I want to know if I should separate these out and put them into their own separate groups?

Also, does anyone have a PowerShell script that can be used to get the groups, group type and group nestings?
