Re: Too many default groups in Skolelinux' LDAP schema?
There's been an entertaining discussion about this :-)
Let me just make the comment that too many groups will create real
problems, no matter what the naming scheme is. Since NFS will honour no
more than 16 groups, users logging in to a thin client server (which
mounts the home dirs etc. using NFS) will risk not being able to use
common file storage set aside for a specific group. We have diagnosed
this problem at one school at least, where one of the teachers was a
member of 28 groups.
Just my 2 cents, guys.
