This article applies to: CU VPN, Group Management


  1. Using a supported browser, connect to manage.ad.cornell.edu.
  2. Log in using your NetID@cornell.edu or your DOCID@cornell.edu account.
    Use the ID that has privileges to manage the group.
  3. Navigate to your group using the tree:
    Directory Management -> Active Directory -> cornell.edu -> DelegatedObjects. 
    Or, if you know the group name, type it in the Quick Search box.
  4. From the list, select Members.
  5. Click to put checks next to the members you want to remove.
  6. Click Remove.
    Note: If you don't see the Remove button, check that you used the NetID or DOCID with the proper privileges to log in. If necessary, click Logout and then log back in using the correct ID.
  7. Type the name or NetID (or group, holdingID, GuestID, TestID, or computer), then click Search. From the list, click each entry that you want to add to the group. Names you select are added to the list in the bottom half of the screen.
    After adding one account, you can search for another. Continue the process until all the accounts are added.
  8. Click OK.

Tip for Large Groups

For a group with many members, it may be cumbersome to locate the NetIDs you want to remove. In the Name box, enter the NetID and press Enter. You'll see a list of NetIDs in that group that matches your search string. Select the correct NetID, and then click Remove.

To see the entire list of group members again, clear the Name box, and press Enter.
