- You have a client computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003.
- You use Computer Management Console (Compmgmt.msc) to add a local group to the group membership of another local group on the same client. For example, you add <Power Users> to Remote Desktop Users on the same client.
- A user who belongs to a group has all the rights and permissions granted to that group. If a user is a member of more than one group, the user has all the rights and permissions granted to all those groups.
- Adding a new local group to the membership of another local group on the same computer is not supported if the addition results in a nested local group membership for the users.
Consider the following example.
- User A is a direct member of Localgroup1 and of Localgroup2. When User A logs on, this user's token includes both Localgroup1 and Localgroup2.
- User B is a member of Localgroup1 and is added together with Localgroup1 to the membership of Localgroup2 by using the net localgroup command.
