Nested User Members


Can any one explain the "Nested User Members" section of a Group
Object's properties in eDirectory? A group object in my environment has
around 10 members, all are user object, but the nested section shows
well over 300 member objects. I am not sure how the nested section is
populated. I appreciate any information.

Re: Nested User Members

If your group is a nested group (meaning it contains other groups) then
those members are from those contained groups, vs. from this group
directly. There is probably a nestedGroupAux (or similar) objectClass
attribute for this group, and probably a groupMember (or something like
that) attribute pointing to the nested groups.

Sounds like you have a nested group.

Re: Nested User Members


I am still fairly new to eDirectory, are nested groups in eDirectory the
opposite of Active Directory? This group only contains User objects,
but it is a member of another group.

Re: Nested User Members


Never mind, I found Groups that are a member by modifying the object and
going under the Nested Tab -> Group Member. I was Modifying the Group
and it was only showing User Objects.

Both eDirectory and Active Directory support nested groups, but
differently. If you have a group that's a member of another group, you
have a nested group.
