  • You don't really migrate AD groups to sharepoint. They are simply available when you want to grant rights to them for a site/library/item, etc.

    What are you trying to do?

  • We have people in AD groups and now we need these groups to be SharePoint Groups. Thanks.

  • Create SharePoint groups and map the AD group to the SharePoint group and provide permissions to the SharePoint group there on.
