1741451 - After migrating objects via incremental upgrade using Upgrade Management Tool, AD and/or LDAP groups no longer add users


  • After migrating AD or LDAP groups via incremental or full upgrade using Upgrade Management Tool Adding new AD/LDAP groups doesn't add users
  • Following steps in KBA 1608901 or KBA 1635277 for migrating 3rd party groups in UMT results in a condition where adding new AD groups succeeds but users do not synch
  • If you run the query in query builder select * from ci_systemobjects where si_name = 'secWinAD' in the results will be the si_mapped_groups one of more values in that field will have the DN instead of sid which is the root cause of this issue
  • users can be added and deleted manually in the users and groups section but cannot be added or removed with the update button or scheduled objects in the authentication plugins
  • It is possible that this issue or symptoms could be caused by a number of as yet undetermined factors. The final fix in patch will hopefully address all issues that result in this problem with the si_mapped_groups
  • Receive error invalid group name, cannot find group followed by a SID or list of SID's when hitting update or enabling AD/LDAP plugin in CMC
