I have given an AD group permissions to a SharePoint (Moss 2007) site. Then I added that group as well as some individuals to a SharePoint Group.
I then added a link to the site Navigation (Site Actions > Site Settings > Modify Navigation). For the Audience for the link, I selected the SharePoint Group.
The individuals I added to the SharePoint Group can see the link. The individuals that belong to the AD Group I added to the SharePoint Group can not see the link.
If I use the SharePoint Group for security (I give them permissions to a subsite, for example), the members of the AD Group inside the SharePoint Group are able to access the subsite.
Is this expected behavior? Is there something I'm missing here?
