Groups in Active Directory ease administrative overhead, by allowing permissions to be configured at the group level, rather than the user level.
One of the courses I teach is the
Microsoft Windows 2012 Installing and Configuring course, the
Microsoft designation is the 20410B
In the presentation, we look at creating and modifying Groups in Active Directory in Windows Server 2012.
While it might be practical to assign permissions and abilities to individual user accounts in small networks, it becomes impractical and inefficient in large enterprise networks. For example, if many users need the same level of access to a folder, it is more efficient to create a group that contains the required user accounts, and then assign the group the required permissions.
This has the added benefit of enabling you to change a user's file permissions by adding or removing them from groups rather than editing the file permissions directly.
Before implementing groups in your organization, you must understand about the scope of various Windows Server group types, and how best to use these to manage access to resources or to assign management rights and abilities.
This demonstration shows you how to create and modify Groups in Active Directory.
