eDir User Sync and Dynamic Groups and Distribution Lists

Alright, so I followed TID 3074853 on how to set up a Group as a Distribution List and then use iManager to turn it into a Dynamic Group. Then the eDirectory User Synchronization should update members of the Distribution lists based on these groups when it runs each night. The new Distribution Lists show up but have no members.

I have eDir User Sync enabled and the agent says that it has eDirectory access (yes).
I've checked my LDAP user is a trustee of the tree with [All Attribute Rights], select Compare and Read.
I've logged into LDAP using a browser and that user to confirm that it can see those new groups and see each member listed.
All the dynamic users are showing as member(s) of the groups in question.

When I go into the address book, I see the Distribution Lists based on those Dynamic Groups but no one is listed in the Distribution List. 😞

Can someone steer me in the right direction of what to do to diagnose the issue? :cool: Thank you.

Nyle,

check the MTA logs around the time the sync is supposed to run. Anything useful in there? Consider setting the MTA log level to "verbose" first.

Re: eDir User Sync and Dynamic Groups and Distribution Lists

Thanks for the reply Uwe. If anyone looks back at this for a fix themselves, I ended up restarting all of GroupWise and the groups finally updated properly. Which is a relief since the configuration should have been correct and wasn't that complicated.

However, I don't quite understand why that was necessary. The next test will be to update the OU with a new user and see if the Distribution Lists update automatically from the Dynamic Groups or not.

Re: eDir User Sync and Dynamic Groups and Distribution Lists

Well, I guess it's the good old "Did you try turning it off and back on again?" 🙂
Glad you got it fixed!
