GROUP_INFO_2 info  Overview  Group

The GROUP_INFO_2 structure specifies information about a global group, including name, identifier, and resource attributes.

typedef struct _GROUP_INFO_2 {
LPWSTR grpi2_name;
LPWSTR grpi2_comment;
DWORD grpi2_group_id;
DWORD grpi2_attributes;


A Unicode string that specifies the name of the global group. The constant GNLEN specifies the maximum number of characters in the string. For NetGroupSetInfo, this member is ignored.
A Unicode string that contains a remark for the group. This element can be a null string. The comment can have as many as MAXCOMMENTSZ characters.
The relative identifier of this account.
The attributes of a group (stored in TOKEN_GROUPS). For Windows NT 4.0, you can no longer set these attributes. They are hardwired to SE_GROUP_MANDATORY, SE_GROUP_ENABLED, SE_GROUP_ENABLED_BY_DEFAULT:




Indicates that the group is enabled by default. Use this value to specify the initial state of the group.


Indicates that the user may not disable the group. Disabling a group causes the group membership to be ignored by the access validation routines.


Indicates that the group can be assigned as the owner of an object.
