set primary group button greyed out


J

Jason Gallas

I cannot change the primary group of a user. I want to create an anonymous
IIS account and want to remove "domain users" as one of the groups that this
account is a member of but I cannot switch the primary group because the
option is greyed out. The server is a windows 2000 server.

There is no need to change Primary group unless you have Macintosh clients
or POSIX-compliant applications.

That's exactly what it says, but I am configuring an IIS Anonymous user
account and I don't want that user to be a member of Domain Users.

Jason there have to be one Primary Group, You have to add another group to
this particular user, then mark and use the button Set Primary Group. You
should now be available to remove the membership of Domain Users.

I have added a couple of groups (guest and administrator) but when I
highlight them I cannot click the set primary group button, it is greyed
out.

Jason it doesn't works with built in groups. If you add the Guests it seems
to still be grayed out, I added our Worldwide SharePoint Marketing Theme
Group and I can make this as the primary group.

I just found out that you have to make the AD group that you want to make primary a Global or a Universal Group. Domain Local didn't work.
