Thanks Mike,
    I am logging on the local client machines with a user
account that is a member of the Domain Admins group when I
view the members of the computers local groups and see
SIDS instead of names. If I add another domain user or
group I'll see the name until I click the apply button,
then the name changes to the SID for the account. I get no
errors nor am I asked to provide domain credentials to
access the domain accounts list like you would be if you
were not logged on with a domain account. Permissions
appear to work fine for the domain groups. Logging on with
domain accounts is fine. There are no individual domain
accounts added to the clients. Just the Domain users group
in the local Power Users Group. ( For my daughters legacy
games to run ).
