Groups not being created in correct OU - mirrored sync

Hello: I have changed my eDir-to-AD one-way sync'ing from the subscriber being flat to being mirrored. When I ran this change my eDir OUs were created properly. Users were not recreated as they already had IDM Oject ID. I just moved the users to the newly mirrored OUs. However, any groups that I had in eDir, no matter where in the tree they were located, were recreated under my main OU in AD. This created duplicate group objects in AD, one in the old flat structure and a new one in the new mirrored structure. I was able to fix this. I checked and all the groups had an IDM Object ID's in Edir so I don't understand why the groups acted differently than user objects.

I hope I explained this well enough to make some sense. Any ideas? Chris.

Re: Groups not being created in correct OU - mirrored sync

Hi Chris,

"By default" location of the users and groups controlled by DriverSet level GCV idv.dit.data.users and idv.dit.data.groups (defined in Common Settings package.

Could you publish here level 3 trace of your group creation event (from the beginning of the event or from Subscriber Matching policy)?

Re: Groups not being created in correct OU - mirrored sync

Thanks all for your input. I was able to get this working by completely redoing my driver setup. I am not sure what was incorrect, but at least I have it working.

Thanks again, Chris.
