Grouper assumes that you use a transactional database. Are you using mysql
with myisam or other nontransactional tables perchance?

I hope to implement this jira soon (1.6.1?), which will save us all some time
by detecting on startup if the DB is transactional.

Anyways, if this is the case, if you switch to innodb tables or something
else that is transactional, it should start working... :)

Hi again,

> Please try it out and let me know if there are any problems.

The success message came too early. Although I'm getting the message
that I'm not allowed to change the posixGroup, the gidNumber is still

gsh 3% getGroupAttr("aStem:aGroup9", "gidNumber")
gsh 4% setGroupAttr("aStem:aGroup9", "gidNumber", "33")
// Error: unable to evaluate command: Sourced file: inline evaluation
of: ``setGroupAttr("aStem:aGroup9", "gidNumber", "33");'' : Error
invoking compiled command: : Error in compiled command:
cantEditTypeNotInGroup: Not allowed to edit type: posixGroup, changing
attribute gidNumber since the user Subject id: xmuster, sourceId:
uosldap is not in group: null
gsh 5% getGroupAttr("aStem:aGroup9", "gidNumber")
