2.5. Why aren't permissions for my Active Directory groups being applied as I intend?
Access to file system locations and their subfolders on a CLC Genomics Server can be controlled via AD groups, including nested groups.
The effective group membership for a user must, however, be entirely through Security groups.
Distribution groups can not be used to assign permissions to shared folders in a Genomics Server data location, in line with the Microsoft description of security vs. distribution groups.
