Re: Howto implement RBAC with OU's and posixGroups

What I mean with "this" in "in AD this is possible" is the fact that you can assign group membership to OU membership (When user A is member of OU B, user A will become member of group C".

Afaik this is not possible with OpenLDAP. If it is, I would really like to know how. My only bet is with dynamic groups/list, but I have no idea how.

Not in nis.schema, but in rfc2307bis.schema, posixGroup is not structural.

It is possible in OpenLDAP too. Just now with nis.schema. Most LDAP clients
support rfc2307bis.
