  • Exporter: Group Members doesn't include groups as members

    Using Exporter from the Hyena interface, I am running the Groups and Group Members exports on our AD forest.

    I get the reports I expect, but the don't include members for a group which are group objects.

    For instance, if A is a user and G is a global group, and they are both members of Domain Admins, in the Group Members export I get A as a member of Domain Admins, but not G.

    Note: I am not talking about recursively expanding member groups' memberships. I'm just talking about the simple presence of a group as a member. I can see it in Hyena, but I don't get it in the export.

    I'm relatively new to Hyena -- what am I missing here?

    We have plans to update Exporter in a future update to allow for better Active Directory reporting.

    Under NT (the model that Exporter uses), global groups can only be members of local groups and not other global groups, so it's not able to see these.

      Just FYI - I too am very interested in having this capabilty added. What's the best way to keep track of when updates are available?
