    Hi,

    When I join my computers to a domain, they inherit some "ACCOUNT UNKNOWN (SID)" security groups on them.

    1) How can I check what groups are being inherited and have control on what is being inherited?

    2) I thing that these are old groups which have been deleted and can be deleted? Am I right on this?

    Thanks,
    Joseph

    where exactly do your see these groups? Usually when you join a machine nothing is pushed until the first logon, so it is either a logon script or a GPO

    It is in the Security Permissions of The computer Account.

    It shows as Account Unknown(S-1-3-21-2 etc etc)

    Inherited From: Dc=domain name,DC=local

    Thanks.

    The only thing I can think of is Group Policy. Did you go through all of those settings?
