Is it possible for a group to directly or indirectly include itself?
In other words, is it possible for the following structure to be created:
└─ Group-A(recursive cycle)
Does AD detect and prevent such cases, or does it allow them and handle the recursive cycle.
If I had administrative access to an AD forest, and I wasn't afraid of unravelling the fabric of reality, I would test this myself. Google, sadly - has been of little help in answering this question ... although I may not be making the proper incantation in the search input box.
