Domain Users / Group Checking

As you may all be aware, AX 2012 offers certain ability to manage your Dynamics AX 2012 users via Active directory groups. Hopefully more on that later. (Check out this post in the meantime http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dynamics-coe/archive/2013/01/13/using-windows-ad-groups-for-user-management-in-ax2012.aspx)

The one problem however is that it becomes quite difficult to trouble shoot security settings. For example how to determine whether a user is actually part of an active directory user group. If you are not a domain admin you can try and use the following two command prompt instructions

1. To detemine an individual user’s groups
net user /domain [username]
e.g.: net user /domain jonathanhalland

2. To detemine all users belonging to a specific group
net group /domain [groupname]
e.g.: net group /domain axrequisitioncreators
