  • Limits on Nesting Security Goups?

    Are there limits (technical or performance) on the depths to which you can nest Security Groups?

    Any best practice in this regard?

    Thanks,

    Bud,

    I found the following information on TechNet HERE. It may shed some light on your question:

    Group Memberships for Security Principals

    Security principals (that is, user, group, and computer accounts) can be members of a maximum of approximately 1,015 groups. This limitation is due to the size limit for the access token that is created for each security principal. For more information, see article 328889 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=115213). For a detailed discussion of access token limitations, see Addressing Problems Due to Access Token Limitation (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=146571).
