  • A group is a collection of user and/or computer accounts, and contacts that are managed as a single object. The users and computers that belong to the group are known as group members. Groups are used to simplify the administrative process of assigning permissions and rights to a large number of users at the same time.

  • It is easier to set permission on limited Group, rather then setting permission for hundreds and thousands of users.

  • Windows Server 2003 supports 2 groups: Distribution groups & Security groups.

  • Distribution groups can be used for distributing messages to group members by assigning an e-mail address. They are not used for security purpose.

  • Security Groups are used to assign access permission and rights for network resources to the group rather than to each individual user that requires access. All users and groups that are members of the group will receive the configured permissions and rights through inheritance



  • The scope of a group identifies the extent to which the group is applied throughout the domain, tree or forest.

  • DSADD GROUP command line tool to add groups

  • DSMOD GROUP command line tool to modify groups



Domain local groups can be used to manage access to resources within a SINGLE Domain can include other groups and user and/or computer accounts from Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000 Server, and Windows NT domains.


can include other groups and user and/or computer accounts from only the domain in which the group is defined. Permissions for any domain in the forest can be assigned to Global groups.


can include other groups and user and/or computer accounts from any domain in the domain tree or forest. Universal groups are only available if your domain functional level is set to the Windows 2000 native / Windows Server 2003 domain functional level . It is used to define sets of users or computers that wide permission throughout a domain or forest.
