    The "_All Managers" is a Universal Distribution Group
    that I created. I
    created a "Managers Universal Group" and made it a
    Universal Security Group, and I added the "_All Managers"
    DUG to it. My boss's email was:

    "I made the UG the only authorized user for Project and
    it instantly disappeared from my Citrix login options.
    (Before my user account had explicitly been authorized).
    I don't know that you can effectively add a distribution
    group to a security group, because that would leave group
    membership in the hands of the distribution group owner,
    who likely would not otherwise have administrative rights
    to change memberships in security groups. You might have
    to duplicate the distribution group membership in the
    security group."

    So, can you add Distribution Groups to Security groups???

    You should not add a distribution group to a security group as a
    distribution group is not security enabled it will not be included in the
    user's login token. That may cause the security group not be in the token
    aswell - so the result may be that the user does not get the permissions
    associated with the securitygroup.
