MS-ADA3 2.120 claims:
This attribute specifies a computed attribute that is used in retrieving the membership list of a group
such as Domain Users. The complete membership of such groups is not stored explicitly for scaling
reasons. For more information refer to [MS-ADTS] section 188.8.131.52.5.11 and [MS-SAMR].
MS-ADTS 184.108.40.206.5.11 claims:
Let TO be the object from which the primaryGroupToken attribute is being read.
The value of TO!primaryGroupToken is the RID from TO!objectSid when there exists C in
TO!objectClass such that C is the group class. Otherwise, no value is returned. That is, if TO is a
group, then the value of this attribute is the RID from the group's SID. If TO is not a group, no
value is returned when this attribute is read from TO.
The behaviour of Window 2008 appears to follow MS-ADTS. That is, the primaryGroupToken appears to be the RID of the objectSID for all groups.
Please advise, clarify or correct,
