70-410 Objective 5.3 – Group Scope and Nesting Groups on Windows Server 2012 R2

In this video for Objective 5.3 Creating and Managing Groups and Organizational units, we will look at group scope and nesting of groups. Group Scope is defined with two characteristics, the first is the availability of the group. The second is what it can be a member of and which type of groups can use it. A table of these characteristics can be found here https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755692(v=ws.10).aspx. A blended strategy of using the proper group scope and the nesting of groups, will allow for the most flexibility of assignment of permissions. For example, when creating permissions we usually only use one group. We assign users to that group and then the permissions onto the resource. However, when a particular user does not fit into the model we’ve created we add that one user to the resource. This is completely wrong and it’s the reason we should use the model of AGDLP or AGUDLP. AGDLP is Accounts are added to a Global Group, the Global Group is added to the Domain Local Group and the Domain Local Group is assigned Permissions. An alternate approach is AGUDLP which is: Accounts are added to a Global Group, the Global Group is added to a Universal Group, the Universal Group is added to the Domain Local Group and the Domain Local Group is assigned Permissions. The second approach is best used in large multi domain forests, where the first approach should be used in single domain forests or multi domain forests.
