I think this is what you need...

Sync Member Attributes
If you make a change to the sort or search strings, you should sync the
member attributes. For subjects that are people, you can use USDU:
There is a snip of GSH code to manually trigger the USDU utility.

You may also be able to trigger the USDU from the command line like this as
$GROUPER_HOME/bin/ -usdu <command line arguments>
-source <arg> find unresolvable subjects from source

Assuming it does the same thing with both invocations ( and I would guess
that it would ) limiting it to a specific source would make the most sense to

On the other hand....
If you are sending yourself the daily reports then the USDU may have
already been run too.

NOTE: If your source has a lot of members, it may take a while to
I recently became aware that my "daily report" was always running the
USDU and "bad memberships" find functions. I change it to only run those one
day a week. The report takes over 3.5 hours when the USDU is run against 775k
Members. ( almost all from a single LDAP source ). However it runs in less
than 3 minutes when the USDU is not run on that day.

Hello Group(ers),

I improperly set the 'searchAttributeX' values in the upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4
a little while ago, which meant that the search_string0 - search_string3 were
not updated in the grouper_member table (probably among others) for new
memberships and groups since the upgrade.

I've just made the correction to, and am now wondering if
there is a way to nudge Grouper to update those values for existing
memberships now that the file has been changed?
