Hi again,
no one knows something about this behavior? The same happens if you add
the "Domain-guest" account to an other local group.

I will be happy if some one can point me to some documentation or give
some hints about that. I have searched the internet but with this
keywords you find million of pages .... with zero solutions.

greetings mario
