Active Directory synchronization

Hi Experts,

We're currently facing a blocking issue with our project.

We have users set in different Active Directory groups ; every time we add an user to a group, the user is created in BO.

The problem is when we switch users to a different Windows AD group : they should move to the corresponding BO group. However, even if they do appear in the target group, they do not disappear from their origin group. in BusinessObjects, they appear in both groups.

We checked on the Windows AD, and the users are no longer in their origin group, as wanted.

Did anyone ever face this behavior ?

We're working on the BI 4.1 SP04 Patch 8

Thanks a lot for your help

Hi everyone,

We found the answer As described in SAP Note 2118522, the issue was that the user we wanted to move was the only user of its user group. Therefore, the BI platform refused to clear it from it. This issue will be fixed in the coming patches/version.

Thank you for your help!
