I'm running a SharePoint 2010 environment and have just set up an audience based on a Windows Security Group.

I've set up the following rule:

Operand: User
Operator: Member Of
Value: Windows Security Group name

When I compile the audience it says the number of members is 0 (zero).

The Windows Security Group in Active Directory has about 7 members already, but they are not shown in the audience.

Does anyone here have experience in setting up SharePoint 2010 audiences based on Windows Security Groups in Active Directory?

was there a compilation error when you compiled it? have you specified any audience rules? (if so remove them an re-compile) –  Anthony Kasses Jul 2 '12 at 10:34
    
@AnthonyKasses Thank you for replying. There are no compilation errors. –  TempaC Jul 2 '12 at 10:53
    
does running the "User Profile Service Application - Audience Compilation Job" manually help? –  Anthony Kasses Jul 2 '12 at 11:12
    
@AnthonyKasses - I manually executed the job "User Profile Service - Audience Compilation Job". The job succeeded but it did not populate the audience. - Do I need to edit the User Profile Service Application Policy setting to include "MemberOf" ? –  TempaC Jul 2 '12 at 11:32
    
no I wouldn't do that and I think it is a reserved property anyway. Maybe ensure the User Profile Service App is healthy and a successful synchronisation has previously been run. Importantly check you're not filtering out these groups/users via the sync. If you do kick off a sync, the compilation job wont start until FIM has finished. (disclaimer here running FULL syncs .. all the usual warnings with FIM apply). Not sure this will help you but audience compilation is based off the UPS app so it pays to check that first. –  Anthony Kasses Jul 2 '12 at 12:12
