Good morning

We went ahead and moved to v2.2.2 over the weekend and yesterday started off
a psp bulkSync with AD. This ran for over 24 hours with no signs of reaching
the end.

We've also noticed about 200 instances of the following error which we're
assuming is being caused by a timeout:
WARN PsoReference.getReferences(137) - - Pso reference 'membersLdap' -
Unable to resolve identifier

This has meant that some users have been removed from groups incorrectly -
the users are in AD and haven't been removed from all the groups they're a
member of. We've now stopped the bulkSync before it removes more people from
groups incorrectly.

We're considering our options for what to do next. Any ideas would be welcome!

At the moment, the plan is to individually sync the groups that we know have
been affected by the above issue and then switch on real time psp
provisioning and allow users back onto the system. There are still a number
of large groups (15000+ members) that we know the bulkSync didn't get around
to syncing. Is it safe to try to sync these groups individually whilst the
real time provisioning is running?

I'd appreciate any help or advice anyone can offer.
