Group Membership

Postby stebbo » Mon Nov 19, 2012 9:55 am

Hi all,

my question is in two parts.

1. How can I search for all users in a given OU that are NOT members of a given group, and
2. How can I then add those users into that given group.

Thanks in advance,

Cheers,
Chris.

Hi.
Sorry for the delay.
As for your question:
1. Select a group in the Scope Pane, where you want to add users and press Add or Remove Group Memebrs button from the Member\Group Management toolbar. The Add or Remove Group Members Wizard will be launched. Here you will be offered to specify which members are to be included to a selected group. Members which already belong to the group will be displayed on the right, while those available to be added - on the left. Now our task is to keep in the left list only those members, that are contained in a given OU . To do this we have to configure search settings.
2. Press Configure Settings button.
3. In the opened Group/Member Settings dialog, on the Member Search page, press Member Search Settings... button.
4. In the opened Member Search Settings dialog select the Search in branches radio button and then click Add to specify a new search branch.
5. In the opened Add Branch dialog, insert DN of the OU into the Branch DN edit and press OK.
6. Press OK on the Member Search Settings dialog.
7. Select Group Search tab on the Group/Member Settings dialog and click Group Search Settings... button.
8. In the opened Group Search Settings dialog select the Search in branches radio button and then click Add to specify a new search branch.
9. In the opened Add Branch dialog, insert DN of the OU into the Branch DN edit and press OK.
10. Press OK on the Group Search Settings dialog.
11. Press OK on the Group/Member Settings dialog.

Now, on the left side you'll see all users from the given OU, that are not members of the specified group. Members which already belong to the group will be displayed on the right. You can move members between lists by pressing the Space key, or just Drag-n-Drop them with the mouse. Then press Finish to apply changes.
