When AD or LDAP Query module built a group cache, that cache contained an unnecessary attribute that was never used.


apd process size grows significantly after group cache is built. If several different caches are maintained at the same time, the process size can hit the 4 GB limit.


AD/LDAP Query module is configured with option that requires building of a local group cache.



Fix Information

Removed an unnecessary attribute from cache. As a result, the group cache size and APD process size have been reduced.
