Yes i mean nested groups, ...and IT WORK !
just because of 'member'-attribute, - just add it to
'posixGroup'-objectclass ,and you can add
members like this:
dn: cn=Domain Admin,ou=Groups,dc=my,dc=org
cn: Domain Admin
displayName: Domain Admin
where IT is another posixGroup,
As result - members of IT-group becomes to 'Domain Admins'
I told you - it must works, you try, i'm already tested with Samba acl
shares (and my Samba looking for Ldap)
(..sorry for my english

You mean nested groups?
Deploying posixGroup is the very same concept like Unix groups in
/etc/group. And there is no such concept like nested groups there.

The attribute 'memberUid' contains the numeric Unix UID of all member
users of a 'posixGroup'. But where do you have this declaration with
attribute 'member' from? Normally it's not declared with attribute
memberOf is a completely different thing. It's a dynamically generated
back-link from the user's entry to all the group entries a user is a
member of. It cannot be used in conjunction with 'posixGroup' though.
