Use of Groups

I have talked mostly about user accounts in Windows 2000. Another type of account proves to be very useful, and that is the group account. Group accounts allow you to assign permissions to several users at one time and therefore prevent you from having to assign permissions frequently. After permissions have been assigned to a group, giving users access to resources is as simple as adding them to the group.

Just as there are local user accounts and global user accounts, there are local groups and global groups. The same properties apply to group accounts as they do to user accounts. Local groups are local to the machine that they are created on; global groups are valid throughout the domain.
