Virtual static groups


Virtual static groups is a special type of LDAP Group, but could be implemented in other disciplines, that appears to be static group to external clients but obtains its membership information from another group (like a DynamicGroup) in the server.

Virtual static groups are implemented by a server process which requires the server to process the group membership.

Virtual static groups are primarily used in cases where a client application only supports static groups but have a very large number of members that are better suited for maintaining in a dynamic group.

In EDirectory the DynamicGroupAux ObjectClasses is used for Virtual static groups.
