    Experts,

    I'm still confused by the difference between Global Groups and Domain Local
    Groups. I mean, they seem to me to accomplish the very same thing: Both
    are domain-wide entities which can give users access to resource
    domain-wide.

    The main difference is related to the manner in which groups can or cannot
    be distributed and/or joined to other groups within affiliated domains.

    Not quite.

    Global groups can contain:
    * Groups and accounts that reside in the same domain
    Global groups can be assigned permissions to:
    * Any object in any domain in the forest

    Domain local groups can contain:
    * Accounts, global and universal groups from any domain, and domain
    local groups from the same domain.
    Domain local groups can be assigned permissions to:
    * Any object in the same domain

    Groups with domain local scope help you define and manage access to
    resources within a single domain. These groups can have as their members:

    a.. Groups with global scope
    b.. Groups with universal scope
    c.. Accounts
    d.. Other groups with domain local scope
    e.. A mixture of any of the above
    Use groups with global scope to manage directory objects that require daily
    maintenance, such as user and computer accounts. Because groups with global
    scope are not ted outside of their own domain, accounts in a group
    having global scope can be changed frequently without generating tion
    traffic to the global catalog.
