I need to create a nested Group in eDirectory 8.8.2 FTF1 or later, using the plugins available with iManager 2.7 SP1 or later and associate a static group to it.
Figure 1: Creating a Static Group.
Figure 2: Showing the object Class attribute to be selected.
Figure 3: Adding the nestedGroupAux value to the object class.
Figure 4: Showing the NG option in iManager.
Figure 5: Showing the selection Nested Group in order to associate static group to it.
Figure 6: Showing the association of static group SG1 (converted to a nested group) to Nested group NG1.
With this the static group (which is now converted to nested group) is made as the member of the static group using iManager.
Figure 7: Showing the static group selection to verify its membership details.
Figure 8: Shows the membership information of SG1.
In the above screen shot -> Static group’s membership information is shown as NG1.novell
The below screen shot shows the usage of Members tab, to view the user members of the group.
Figure 9: Members tab showing the user members of the group.
