You don’t have to work with Active Directory groups for very long before you can see how they become complicated, sprawling messes, especially once you start managing nested groups. When we say “nested group” we are referring to the Active Directory groups in your organization that have groups embedded within them.
It doesn’t have to stop there, you know. You can have groups within groups within groups and so on. Because of this, using simple one-liners on your groups to find their true membership details may not be enough. We have to dig deeper to find out who actually belongs in which group.
