DS 7.5.0

groupOfEntries

This object class is like the standard groupOfNames object class, except that the member attribute is optional, making it possible to have an empty group.

Note The default schema defines groupOfNames as if it were groupOfEntries, making it possible to have an empty group. This is a deviation from the standard definition.

Use this object class only for group entries. Directory servers cache group entries based on their object class; adding this object class to non-group entries fills the group cache with spurious entries. This hurts overall group-related performance and performance for the non-group entries incorrectly identified as groups.
