Renaming ADUC Security Groups



  • Can you rename ADUC Security Groups without breaking the linking to GPO?0_1474908000492_2016-09-26 12_38_32-SSI-DC1 - NTG - Connected.png

    I have some groupings that I want to 'filter' by, but to do so, I would need to rename the Security Group Names

    I have

    • Accounting Printer Deployment
    • Engineering Printer Deployment
    • Sales Printer Deployment
    • Shop Printer Deployment

    and I would rather have:

    • Printer Deployment Accounting
    • Printer Deployment Engineering
    • etc

    Should be able to. Group names are just identifiers there is really a UID that each group has that is actually linked to the GPOs.

    Updated, guess we'll just wait to see if it broke anything. It's just printers so nothing critical.
