Ok, sounds good.  There is a table which holds the current max index, so as long as that is higher than the current one you are importing, and the index is not in use, you can assign a group whatever you want with sql (or I think GSH)…  ok?

We might be interested in this feature here, but it’s still in planning and proof of concept phase.


We’d do Unix authentication against an LDAP (OID in that case). We were thinking of doing a second root stem (branch) for these groups. The first (course groups) is synced to Active Directory, the second to the OID with unix groups. I think this is easily doable in PSP.


Preferably, only the groups under the second branch should have a GID, it’s not required for the others, but I don’t think it would be a problem if they had one (we can just ignore them), except maybe the large number of groups in the first branch


We’ll have to be able to “import” the current groups with their current GID

For 2.2 we will have integer id’s on groups:


However, is anyone planning on using that for Unix GID’s?  Or do you do this already?


I’m interested in putting some guidance on the wiki or seeing if there is more to develop in this area.  i.e. do you use LDAP?  Will the PSP be able to provision the GID’s?  Or do you use some other software to manage the unix group assignments?  Do you use a Grouper attribute to mark groups for Unix, or for certain Unix environments?  Other details?
