Well, I have tried it with and without as you suggest and it makes ZERO difference.
I just get additional errors for this source as well. I don't think specifying
this source is the right thing to do since there really is no mapping of g:gsa
into LDAP, at least as I understand it.


<source-subject-identifier source="g:gsa" subject- attribute="name" >
<ldap-search base="ou=uob,dc=example,dc=edu"
filter="(cn={0})" />

Do you have a <source-subject-identifier> defined with source="g:gsa" in the ldappc configuration file?


Yes, I have this element and the subject-attribute is set to "name".
If I set
it to "id" I get more errors of other forms.

Do you have a source-subject-name-map element in your ldappc.xml
for the source "g:gsa"? Something like

<source-subject-name-map source="g:gsa" subject-attribute="name" />

where the realistic choices for subject-attribute are "name" and
"id". This declaration would list the specified subject-attribute
for the value of the group-members-name-list list-attribute
corresponding to a subgroup in the ldap entry of a group for which
it is a subgroup.

Has anyone seen an error of the form shown below and figured out
how to fix it?
I seem to get this only for group items and the memberships are
being properly handled.
I happen to be using LDAP as the subject source - but I really
don't think this matters.
