comment Accessing local groups remotly for a Windows Fileshare where user accounts are on an AD
Policies are far easier to manage if you use Item-Level Targetting, that's all. As it stands you've a mixture of local groups, domain groups, and presumably an OU structure set up to apply domain policies to a specific subset of users - lots of places for things to wrong in, and not robust if you've got users who need access to two separate sets of drive maps. Why not use a single domain group to manage both?

I assume that you're recommending to not use Item-Level Targetting then, but to have a separate policy just containing these drive maps? I'm not sure that's a good thing to recommend.

This won't be so easy as the OP is controlling access using local groups on the FS itself.

+1 for this; my general experience is "they say it works but it's never clean".
