Description Dmitri Pal 2014-02-13 14:24:32 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

The example in man sssd-ldap uses the memberof attribute. That's fine per se, but many customers apparently think sssd can use the ldap_access_filter for nested groups, even if AD doesn't have transitive memberof attribute as IPA does. This causes a lot of user confusion.

We should change the example in the manpage and add a note that sssd-simple should be used for nested groups.
