KB-6606: No prefix option needed in copynested group

Authentication Service ,

Is there a way to avoid inserting a prefix when using the copynested group utility (CopyGroupNested.exe) so that the group name can be identical to the one in the Trusted AD Forest? Currently if the prefix is left blank the script fails to run. 


The copynested group utility was originally intended to be used with a prefix so it will produce an error if the prefix switch is left blank. 


Starting in version 5.3.0 (Server Suite 2016) the prefix switch can now be left empty. 

You must add "" to specify no prefix
This must be ran using CMD and not powershell

copygroupnested.exe source.domain source_group target.domain ""
