Problem:

What is the maximum number of groups that a StarTeam user can belong to?  In StarTeam 2005 R2 the Server using the administration console a user can be added to over 1060 groups.  However, once the Star Team Server is restarted the memberships will be lost and the users membership level will be reset to 1060.

Resolution:

In StarTeam 2005 R2 a user can belong to a maximum of 1060 groups. Although the administrator console allows a user to be added to more groups, the information is stored in cache and is not written to the database. So when the StarTeam server is restarted the information is lost.  Star Team 2009 R2 does not have any limitation on the number of the groups a user can belong to.
