Comment 1 Rich Megginson 2008-06-11 21:30:45 UTC
To clarify - if you are not authenticated, and you press Edit Group as in step
3, you get the "Authenticate (log in) to the directory" window, with "Accounting
Managers" pre-filled in in the "Please type your name:" field.  The failure is
because you cannot authenticate as "Accounting Managers" because that is a
group, and you must authenticate as a user.  At this point, I suppose the
correct thing to do would be to let the user select the user to use to
authenticate, or auth as directory manager.

I've confirmed that this is how RHDS 7.1 works, so at least this is not a
regression.  So I'm leaving this on the bug list, as low priority.
