Hi .. We are facing a peculiar issue in our AD environment. We have 3 domain controllers and all are windows 2003 server. But our domain is in mixed mode. We are yet to raise our domain functional level. All clients have Windows XP Professional Here goes the issue... We have some Domain Local Security groups in our AD. We need to assign some (XXX) permissions for the Domain local groups to some(XXX) folders in the client workstations. But we are unable to do this. We are able to give permissions with Global Security Groups. Any suggestions plz..
