If you look at the definition of a posixGroup: objectclass ( 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206 NAME 'posixGroup' SUP top STRUCTURAL DESC 'Abstraction of a group of accounts' MUST ( cn $ gidNumber ) MAY ( userPassword $ memberUid $ description ) ) you won't find a uniqueMember attribute, instead you'll find a memberUid group. memberUid contains member names, so you instead want something like this: dn: cn=mygroup,dc=dinmar,dc=com objectclass: top objectclass: posixGroup cn: mygroup gidnumber: 2005 memberuid: ndressler seems that directory_administrator has a non-standard idea of what a group is.
