Groups with Certain Characters Cannot Be Created in Windows 2000

SUMMARY

In Microsoft Windows NT version 4.0 a bug exists that permits the creation of groups with restricted characters. In Windows 2000 this bug is corrected by adding a check on the server before a group can be created with these characters. Although an upgrade is not blocked nor are any existing groups with these names modified in any way, it is recommended that groups with these names be renamed to conform to the normal group-naming convention.

" / \ [ ] : ; | = , + * ? < >
A local group name can contain up to 256 characters. It can also contain any uppercase or lowercase characters except the backslash character (\).
A global group name cannot consist solely of periods (.) and spaces.
