What is a Global Group?

Created on 2003-02-25 by Rainer Gerhards.

When a domain is created, Windows 2000 creates the following built-in global groups in the Active Directory store to group common types of user accounts for use throughout the domain.
Global groups provide the ability to assign users to authorized administrator and authorized user roles with unique domain-level access restrictions based on the global group to which the user is assigned.

This information was verified with Windows 2000.
