Subject Re: adding a group without members on create
Date Tue, 15 May 2007 19:13:52 GMT
Justen you might by default just add the admin user to the
groupOfUniqueNames
when creating it.  This user is always present and can be deleted later once
another
user is added to the group.  The DN for this user is:

uid=admin,ou=system

HTH,
Alex
