Description Dmitri Pal 2012-06-14 10:09:03 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Active Directory has a special control that can be used to retrieve the complete ancestry of an object based on an attribute such as memberOf.

Community member Sigbjorn Lie pointed out http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa746475%28v=vs.85%29.aspx which describes how to construct a search filter to take advantage of this ability.

We should use this when performing initgroups lookups for Active Directory users, for a significant performance increase.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 02:12:35 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 22:06:27 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
