It’s much easier to administer a network when you can manage several users at once. We can expect that all members of a given section of an organization will have the same needs in accessing data or using printers, and it’s also likely that they should be subject to the same security restrictions. Rather than granting individual users the rights to print to a particular printer or to update files in a given folder, we can allocate those rights to a group object.

Create a group using the following procedure

  • Click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  • From Active Directory Users and Computers/domain node/folder – right-click the folder in which you want to add a new group.
  • Point to New, and then click Group.
  • Type the name of the new group.
  • By default, the name you type is also entered as the pre-Windows 2000 name of the new group.
  • In Group scope, click one of the options.
  • In Group type, click one of the options.

Delete a group using the following procedure

  • Click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Active Directory Users and Computers.
  • Active Directory Users and Computers/domain node/folder that contains the group – click the folder that contains the group you want to delete.
  • In the details pane, right-click the group, and then click Delete.
