Hi Holger,

Using the 2.1.1 example configs, to switch from bushy to flat I set the following 2 properties in


And I commented out the pso element with id=stem in the psp.xml file.  It seems to work for me without making any changes to the psp-resolver.xml file.    The psp-resolver.xml file has multiple references to the 2 properties above.

Are you running 2.1 with the 2.1.0 or 2.1.1 example configs?  What errors are you getting?  Does your psp-resolver.xml file refer to the properties above like the latest example configs?

Chris, Tom -

As a suggestion for the Grouper Provisioning guide: The sections that talk about flat vs bushy provisioning, may need to mention additional settings in the psp-resolver.xml -- or am I mistaken? Or would the psp-resolver.xml need to be updated to inherit the settings from, if possible?

I am experimenting with different provisioning scenarios and tried switching from bushy to flat only with the settings, but then get all sorts of errors, and it provisions the stem as OU, but nothing else. Looking at the debug log indicates that the stem still is provisioned bushy which then brought me to the resolver configuration.

What do you think?
