8.0 EN using global AD groups 01


1.8MAN creates AD groups of the type global.

2.8MAN adds the required users to this group.

3.8MAN assigns permissions to file server resources for this group.






Membership in a global AD-group requires 8 bytes of storage space in the Kerberos token.

This is the most "frugal" group-type, in case you are having issues with Kerberos token limits.


Only users and groups of the assigned domain can be members of global AD-groups. Therefore this approach is unsuitable for multi-domain environments.
