Problem



I need to create a nested Group in eDirectory 8.8.2, using iManager 2.7.



Solution



1. Log in to iManager 2.7 with Administrator credentials.



2. Select Groups from the leftmost panel and create a static Group:





Figure 1 - Creating a Group



3. Modify the static group object and Select "Other".






Figure 2 - Modifying the object



4. Select Objectclass > Edit objectclass attribute > Add item NestedgroupAux.



5. Apply these changes.





Figure 3 - Adding the NestedgroupAux item



Verification and Validation



Perform an Ldapsearch for the nested group object created. For example:



<HostName>:~ # ldapsearch -D cn=admin,o=n -w test cn=nestedg1

------------------------------------------------
version: 1

#
# filter: cn=nestedg1
# requesting: ALL
#

# nestedg1,n
dn: cn=nestedg1,o=n
owner: cn=admin,o=n
objectClass: groupOfNames
objectClass: Top
objectClass: nestedGroupAux
cn: nestedg1
ACL: 2#entry#[Root]#member

# search result
# search: 2
# result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1
----------------------------------------


You will see that the group object class has been extended to the nested Group.
