Description Dmitri Pal 2012-11-29 14:45:51 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

In the nested groups case we use the memberof plugin to make changes db-wise for changing memberships, however this means changes are not reflected in the mmap cache until the mmap entry naturally expires and is refreshed.
Upon db changes we should make a quick search right after the memberof plugin has done it's work (using modifytimestamp ?) and expire any mmap cache entry that has been chahnged in the db.
This will cause th first app that need s the entry to call into sssd and refresh it with proper values.
