Parse two LDIF exports, one only with users and the other only
with group information, and check the associations between both.
Generates an output LDIF file with the proper operations to add

Group and User Association Check Utility


SYNOPSIS

grpusrfix.pl -u <path to the LDIF file with the exported users>
-g <path to the LDIF file with the exported groups>
-o <path to create the LDIF output file>


DESCRIPTION

grpusrfix.pl Reads both an LDIF export with all the users on an eDirectory
tree, and an LDIF export with all groups in the same eDirectory tree, then
check the associations between users and groups. Those associations involve
four attributes, two on the user side and two on the group side. It then
creates an output LDIF file with the proper operations to add any missing
associations in the exported files.

After generating the destination LDIF file, this file should be imported
back in the eDirectory tree from which the user and group exports were
generated.
