  • Hi There,

    The Microsoft Dynamics 365 security groups (PrivUserGroup, SQLAccessGroup, ReportingGroup, and PrivReportingGroup) must be in the same domain as the computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server. These security groups can be located in the same organizational unit (OU) or in different OUs. To use security groups that are located in different OUs, you must install Microsoft Dynamics 365 Server by using an XML configuration file and specify the correct distinguished name for each pre-existing security group within the <Groups> element.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The New OU will be created in the same domain as the domain of the CRM 2016 On premise server and the security groups, its just the path that will be different after the movement
