Assume that you rename a security group or a distribution group, and then grant permissions for the group to a folder by editing the Security tab of the folder properties. You log on a computer that is running Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. In this situation, when you check the system access control list (SACL) in the Security tab of the folder properties, the group is displayed as Group Name (Domain Name\name), which is invalid. We expect that the group is Group Name (Domain Name\sAMAccountName).
- name is a placeholder for the name attribute in the group properties.
- sAMAccountName is a placeholder for the sAMAccountName attribute in the group properties.
