Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3
I have noticed some odd behavior when I perform ldap searches in the compat
tree for groups. I have approximately 20 posix groups including the
default "admins" group.
The default admins group comprises of the default admin user and a single
group called "unixadmins". The unixadmins group is a posix group and has
one member called "winadmins". The winadmins group is an external group
type which contains one external group called "winadmins(a)mywindomain.com".
That group on the windows domain has 2 members: 123456(a)mywindomain.com and
When i perform a search in the compat tree, I see multiple memberUID
entries which are:
This is what I am looking for.
However, when I look at the compat tree entry for "unixadmins" (the posix
group used in the admins group), I don't see any memberUID entries at all.
This is the same result for all the other posix groups which have a similar
When I perform a "id 123456(a)mywindomain.com" I see that the user belongs to
the "admins", "unixadmins" and another posix group (I can also verify
by looking at the users accounts tree).
On a hunch, I added the "admin" user to the unixadmins group and the other
posix group and now when I query the group compat tree then i see an entry
with the memberUid showing both the admin user and the windows users (ie
123456(a)mywindomain.com and 234567(a)mywindomain.com)
Is this a bug ?
