Group members are not being synced into Filr.

This document (7012773) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Filr 1.0
Novell Filr 1.0.1
Microsoft Active Directory


During an LDAP sync, not all the group members are being synced into Filr.
When checking for the group membership in Filr, none, or not all of the group members are being listed.


A workaround for this problem is to make sure that the group being imported into Filr is not set as Primary Group for any of it's members.

Another possible cause could be that the Group name and Group name (pre-Windows 2000) are not identical.


A possible reason is that the missing group members have the group set as their Primary Group in Active Directory.

A bug in the current release of Filr (1.0) will prevent the Primary Group membership from being synced into Filr.
