ResolutionThis is expected behavior. By default, the Domain Users group does not contain actual user objects. In order to add all domain user accounts, work with your domain administrator to create a new group in Active Directory and assign all domain users to this group. Then import the new group into Tableau Server
CauseDomain Users is a special Active Directory group which does not have any users directly assigned to it (unless manually assigned), but shows all users in various tools (i.e. Active Directory Users and Computers).
Additional InformationTo confirm what objects are really located within Domain Users group, the following command could be used on any desktop machine joined to the domain:
ldifde -f groupexport1.ldf -p subtree -r "(&(objectCategory=group )(objectClass=group))" -l "member,cn,objectclass")
