Example of LDAP Users and Attributes
If a user is manually added to a LDAP group, then the user setting takes precedence over LDAP attributes.
For example, an LDAP attribute
objectClass=“Person” is defined for group Group1 and an LDAP attribute
memberOf=“CN=WINS Users,DC=sonicwall,DC=net” is defined for Group2.
If user Jane is defined by an LDAP server as a member of the Person object class but is not a member of the WINS Users group, Jane is a member of SMA appliance Group1.
But if the administrator manually adds the user Jane to SMA appliance Group2, then the LDAP attributes is ignored, and Jane is a member of Group2.
