In my SP2010 farm, I have :
- one domain group "AD Group"
- the group have domain\user2 as a member
- one site group "SP group" with the following members
- AD group
On the home page, I put a webpart I want to display only to members of the "SP group". To achieve that, I set up a target audience to this SP group (SharePoint group kind of audience).
When the user1 displays the page, the webpart is visible (as the user1 is explicitly declared in the group). When the user2 displays the page, the webpart is not visible, even if the user2 is member of the group (implicitly from the AD group).
What can be wrong ? Is this scenario supported in theory ?
[Edit] Don't know if it can help, but in the documentation, I can read :
Note: Although SharePoint groups can be used with Web Parts to target content, they cannot be used to define audiences.
I understand in this sentence that it should work... but the sentence is confusing a bit.
