Unable to list group members in universal group, using net group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    If a universal group has cross domain members I'm unable to list any group members, cross / or same domain, using the following command:

    net group UnivesalGroup1 /domain



    The request will be processed at a domain controller for domain DomainA.

    Group name     UniversalGroup1
    Comment        This is a universal group.
    System error 8519 has occurred.

    A global group cannot have a cross-domain member.


    Extra info,

    UniversalGroup1 is in domainA

    The client where the net group command is run, is also in domainA

    UniversalGroupA contains no group, only users from domainA and domainB.

    domainA and domainB are in the same forest.

    domainA and domainB are childdomains to the same topdomain.

    DomainA and DomainB controllers run Windows Server 2008 R2 sp1

    Forrest Function Level: Windows Server 2008

    DomainA and DomainB Functionlevel: Windows SErver 2008 R2

    Topdomain, Fucntionlevel: Windows Server 2008


    Can anyone explain this behavior ?
