Collections based on nested AD groups RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have collections configured based on computers AD group membership. However SCCM does not seem to enumerate the computer accounts from trusted domains.

    So if I a computer is member of trusted domain B , group membership B_group1 and then B_group1 is member of A_group1 from domain A.

    SCCM does not seem to update group membership of B_group1 .

    However if I create a collection based directy on B_group1 without nesting into another group , Collection updates just fine.

    Is this possible in SCCM or Do I have create queries based on domain group directly and not try to nest them

  • From my ow tests, I needed to qyery the group in both domains in order to get the collectoin to work.

  • Thanks Kent,I think, It is failry accurate to conclude that nested groups do not work in SCCM for collections with multiple trusted domains.
