4. Select Active Directory Users and Computers and select Advanced Features from the View menu.
5. Expand the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in.
6. Expand the domain folder, in this example the companyabc.com folder.
7. Select the Users container. In the right pane, right-click the group that was created earlier, and select Properties.
8. Select the Security tab.
9. At the bottom of the page, click the Advanced button.
10. In the Advanced Security Settings for Group dialog box, select the Permissions tab.
11. Click Add. In the Select User, Computer, or Group window, type in the name of the account for which you want to grant permissions, and click OK.
12. When the Permissions Entry for Group window appears, select the Properties tab.
13. Click the Apply To drop-down list arrow, and then select This Object Only.
14. In the Permissions section, check the Allow boxes for Read Members and Write Members. Then click OK.
