Groups are easy, what are you having problems with?
Just run migrate_group.pl script on /etc/group on a representative machine, that'll
LDIF you can import into your FDS. Verify that the dn is correct and load it in.
It puts all posix groups into an ou=Groups, which I found convenient. From the UI, you
all your posix groups grouped together under Groups.
on a Red Hat system, it will default to Group and not Groups - I found
this incredibly confusing at first.
If you are adding groups from the console, remember to highlight the Groups OU, right
new, "other" posix group. I also change the index to the cn, instead of gid,
that makes it easier
You just have to decide whether you want to continue with the Linux standard where every
user is a
member of his own group. As the number of users grows, that becomes a PITA.
and pretty pointless for workgroups, domains, etc.
