Symptoms


The Solaris Server uses Windows AD server to resolve NIS groups.It seems SRUs after 0.5.11-0.175.3.19.0.5.0 caused an issue where using the command

groups would not return any secondary groups from the LDAP service .


The secondary groups returned for most groups. However for 1 NIS groups, it would not resolve running the groups command from Solaris.

This particular group has many members such that the character count is 8318. Another large group does resolve which has a character count of 4602.
