Overview#NDS Groups have some peculiar items that make adding a user to a group more difficult than it appears. See More Information On NDS Groups for the details.
The GroupFixTool will fix most of these "peculiar items" on a single or all groups.
Usage#The -L option will list groups and members but NOT perform any operations.
The Group Fix Tool performs the following:
- Reads the Group's "member" attribute values
- Adds any values from Group's "member" attribute to the "equivalentToMe" value if they are missing.
- Checks each user entry in the Group's "member" attribute value and adds the group's DN to the "GroupMembership" and "securityEquals" attributes of the user entry.
What the tool does NOT do:
- Never adds a user entry to a Group's "member" attribute.
- Never removes any values from entry to a Group's "equivalentToMe" attribute.
- Never removes any values from entry to a User's "GroupMembership" attribute.
- Never removes any values from entry to a User's "securityEquals" attribute.
