The netgroup is a solution that based on IPs so it is not really

may be we do not need the netgroups.

Netgroups are used for NFS exports, network filtering and
shutdown-at-night features.  Not all of these can be repaced by

In Zweibrücken I have volunteered to start working on a netgroups module/plugin (or whatever) for GOsa². I have had to finish some work on another software project (X2go Client Python API + GUI Client) for one of my customers but that should be finished some time during this week (hopefully).

Thus, I will start on Netgroup integration into GOsa² this week... For a beta release I recommend (that only meets NFS setup tweaks) to use global NFS export rules as opposed to the current netgroups based rules. However, this should only be a temporary tweak.

Until netgroups support is implemented into GOsa², the shutdown-at-night feature will not work which might be tolerable for a beta release (it needs to be communicated well, though).

However, I am not sure about the netfilter dependencies on netgroups. Could you point me to some config files in Debian Edu SVN?
