Managing group accounts

To manage group accounts, you must be a member of either the Domain Admins or Domain Power Users security group.

You can manage group accounts by using the two consoles: Server Management and Server Management for Power Users. Each console contains taskpads called Manage Security Groups and Manage Distribution Groups. Using these taskpads, you can create new groups, remove existing groups, and modify group properties from one central location.

The Manage Security Groups taskpad displays a list of security groups and provides this set of tasks:

  • Add a security group.
  • Change group properties.

If you are a member of the Domain Admins security group, you can also:

  • Remove a security group.

The Manage Distribution Groups taskpad displays a list of distribution groups and provides this set of tasks:

  • Add a distribution group.
  • Change group properties.

If you are a member of the Domain Admins security group, you can also:

  • Manage POP3 e-mail.
  • Remove a distribution group.

Note

  • You cannot remove groups by using Server Management for Power Users.
