SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) to migrate a global group from Domain A to Domain B in Active Directory.

    Note After you migrate the global group to Domain B, the original global group still exists in Domain A.
  • You include the security identifier (SID) history in the migration.
  • On a Windows XP-based client computer, you add the original global group from Domain A to the group discretionary access control list (DACL) for the files in Domain B.
Before you click OK to confirm the selection, the original global group name in Domain A is displayed. However, after you click OK, the global group name is displayed as the new global group in Domain B.

CAUSE

When a global group is migrated from one domain to another domain, the new global group in the new domain includes the original domain SID in the SID history. Therefore, when you try to add the original global group to the group DACL for the files in the new domain, the name of the migrated global group in the new domain is displayed.
