    In Windows 2003 Server users can also be put into one or more groups.
    By putting users into these groups the users may inherit permissions and
    privileges that were not granted to them directly.

    If asked to administer user accounts to an existing Windows 2003 Server
    installation how would one track down all of the groups that a user account
    belongs to and how would one know what all the permissions and privileges are
    that the user inherited and were assigned directly?

  2. You can go into Aactive Directory Users and Computers and locate the user
    account you are interested in. Double click the account and then go to the
    member of tab and you can see which security groups they are in. Is that all
    are do you need something else?
