Question

I would like to use the NT Database to hold user information, however my Internet domain name is longer than the user Manager will allow me to enter as the name of a global group.

Answer

Create a local group name (which allows longer names) with the same name as your Internet domain name. Then make a global group – containing your members – a member of this local group.
