Severity: 4-Minor


Retrieving too many groups might cause out-of-memory errors in TMUI and VPE. TMUI might end up with HTTP 502 and VPE fails with HTTP 500


It's hard to perform LDAP/AD group mapping because there are no group names in the dialog box, which complicates work on such a large number of groups.


LDAP/AD server with over 20,000 groups.


The only solution is to remove /shared/tmp/gmcache folder and use manual groupmapping.

Fix Information

Retrieving too many groups no longer results in memory errors in TMUI and VPE, even on LDAP/AD servers with over 20,000 groups.
