Windows Security Groups

Sep 26, 2008 at 3:50 PM
Hello all,

Is it possible to use Active Directory Security Groups as targets for the training?

(Meaning you add the group to MOSS, with visitor and SLK learner role) will you get enumaration/reports of all users? (currently it takes a LONG time to load 8000 users for an assignment in the grade page or when editing the assignment, a lot of IE CPU usage, is there any way to optimize using groups?)

Kind regards,

Simara

Hello all.

Bumping this question.

Can anyone answer it ?
I tried it in my WSS 3.0 environment, but receive errors in SLK and n Event Viewer (Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: This page is available only for a Web site with unique permissions. )

Thank You!

In answer to the original question, you can use AD groups as targets, but you will still get the list of all members of those groups. So it won't help the original poster.

Althor, it sounds like you need need to break inheritance on the site that you are assigning content to. SLK depends on unique permissions to determine who the learners and instructors are.

Hi Richard,

when I want to add an AD group to my SLK learner group I'm getting a message like this:

The list of instructors or learners may be incomplete because the following groups could not be read:

domain\domain users

More information may be available in the server event log.

I have MOSS2007 and SLK 1.3.1.

What I want to do is to allow every user (about 6000) in our company to access the elearnings. The easiest way for me is to add the NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users (build in in SharePoint) or to add the AD group with all our domain users to the SLK learner group.

When I us the NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users I get the following error:
An error occurred. More information may be available in the server event log.

When I us an AD group even a very small one I get the following message:
The list of instructors or learners may be incomplete because the following groups could not be read:

  • FN2\is4

More information may be available in the server event log.


It would be great if you can help me with that!

Regards
Henning

Hi Henning,

That sounds like a permission problem. Have you looked in the server event log?

When you say you want the users to access the e-learnings, do you want to assign and track if they take them, or just make them available.

Hi Richard,

I just want to make the Microsoft eLearnings to everyone available.
I will take a look to the server event log and will send you the extract.

Many thanks
Henning

Hi Richard,

I have tested it again today and it works partially!?!?
Maybe our admins have installed a new patch or something.
Partially means I can add a AD group to the Learner group and if I make a new assignment there comes no error. BUT in the Specify Assignment Properties page I can just see about 20 users from that group.

We want to go live with SharePoint end of march and I want to give these eLearning courses as an additiuonal help to the users.

Is there any other way so that all of our users can run 8 (4 engl. + 4 german) Microsoft SharePoint eLearning courses?


Best regards
Henning

Hello,

maybe could this solve your problem: Turn off permission inheritance on each site of the site collection.

Site Actions --> Site Permissions --> Stop Inherit Permissions

I use the SLK-1.5Beta3-2010 and had the same error:  

The list of instructors or learners may be incomplete because the following groups could not be read

  • Domain\domain users

 

Good luck.

Domain Users is a special group and isn't supported by SLK. Due to how the membership is stored (as primary group) l don't think it is feasible to support it

Hello All,

I Have the same Issues with the Groups and decided to use PowerShell to ectract the User from the AD and pump it into the SLK Learner group...

add-pssnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell

$Searcher=New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$Searcher.Filter="(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(sAMAccountName=u*)(mail=*))"
$Searcher.PageSize = 1000
$Results=$Searcher.FindAll()
$ADUser = ($Results|%{$_.GetDirectoryEntry().SAMAccountName})

Function AddUsers($ADUser)
{    
foreach ($user in $ADUser)    
{           
new-SPUser -UserAlias $user -Web "http://collaboration-dev.xxx.com/" -Group "SLK Learner"       
    
}
}   
AddUsers($ADUser)
