Identify the depth of group nesting


An AD that has grown over years often contains a large number of nested levels. The ARM dashboard shows nested groups up to level 10. According to Microsoft best-practice your AD should contain no more than 3 or 4 levels. ARM allows you to identify these critical areas of your AD and restructure them with minimal effort. In order to achieve low levels of nesting and maintain a well organized AD structure we recommend creating more groups with specific functionalities.
