    Sharepoint Groups

    In Active Directory I have two OU's. Pupils & Staff. I want to get two groups in Sharepoint. Would the best way to do this be to create two new Security Group's in AD, and make all my pupils a member of the pupils security group, and staff members of the staff security group. Then create two new groups in Sharepoint called Pupils & Staff. Add the security group as a user in each group?

    You don't really need to create the AD groups, though I'll give you that it'll be a lot quicker to do that than to add all of the users to the appropriate Sharepoint groups.

    Yep, your method would work fine.

    Well no I wouldnt want to add 1200 pupils manually. or 300 Staff!

    But what I want to achieve in the end is the homepage be an internet published front page which requires no authentication. But all my sites & custom navigation links be hidden from that front site byt use of permissions and audience targetting.

    Ok hmm I created two security groups in AD. Added those security groups as users in a sharepoint group. Seems to work okay. Users in Staff sharepoint group can see sites that those in the pupil sharepoint group can not.

    But when I go to my top site > site settings > modify navigation > click on a link I created > edit and choose Audience Pupils, Staff ( my two sharepoint groups ) it shows up for no one.
