Are default user group names localized? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    When exchange server (say Exchange Server 2010) is installed, it creates some user groups in AD. I want to check weather given user is member of "Recipient Management" group (one of the default groups created by Exchange).

    Code I have written is based on this name (viz. "Recipient Management"). It is working fine with English OS machine. I want to know if such group names (name of groups created by Exchange) are localized or not.

    If above is true, then my code will fail if it is to run on Japanese locale machine.

    I faced similar problem while checking membership of Built-In local admin group. Issue was resolved using SID of local admin group. I don't know how to tackle the same for Exchange group.

    It will be great help if anybody could confirm if "Recipient Management" group name will be localized or not.

    Thanking you in anticipation.
