Trouble Modifying Users/Groups That I Did Not Create.

Using the BOXIR2 CMC...

I am a new admin that has been added to the system. Probably 50 or so groups and 1000's of users already exist in the system. My account is in the Administrators group. I can create new users and new groups. I can add users I created to groups I created. I can assign rights to any group for any folder.

Here is my problem:

1) I am unable to add users/groups (I did not create) to any group.

2) I am unable to add users/groups ( I created ) to groups I did not create.

Actions taken:

(User I created): CMC Home>Users>(username1)>Member of>Modify Member of>. Under "Available groups:" all groups are gray/disabled except groups I created and these two groups: "Report Conversion Tool Users" & "Universe Designer Users".

(User I did not create): CMC Home>Users>(username2)>Member of>. At this page the "Member of..." button is gray/disabled.

(Group I created): CMC Home>Groups>(groupname1)>Add Users>. Under "Available users:" all users are gray/disabled except users I created and my own user account.

(Group I did not create) CMC Home>Groups>(groupname2)>Users>. At this page the "Add Users..." and "Remove Users..." buttons are gray/disabled.

What am I doing wrong or what is the problem here? If anyone can shine the light on this I'd be greatly appreciative. Thanks.

It sounds like your group security has been modified to only allow modifications to objects it owns in the user/group security root. I would check this first. If that is ok then check your user ID specifically for the same right.
